Hello and a big warm welcome to my new followers :-) HEre's my card for our new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges where our theme of 'Musical' has been chosen by my lovely teamie Esther.As always our lucky winner will receive a voucher for Cottage Crafts from our generous sponsor Marina, and of course we want to see some rubber stamping.
I've made a Christmas card with a musical theme. I began by stamping a music stamp on to a cream card blank with vintage photo distress ink and then used the same ink to distress the edges. The next layer is card covered with Tim's music tissue, scrunched up and coloured with distress stains with some faux stitching round the edges. I've added a pretty doily from my stash coloured with distress ink and glimmer mist. The sentiment is from Chocolate Baroque, embossed with brown EP and layered up over a lattice diecut. The angel is also a Chocolate Baroque stamp from the same themeplate which is now discontinued. I've stamped her with memento ink and coloured her with promarkers, adding glamour dust to her wings for some sparkle. You can see her a bit better in this pic:
To finish off I've added faux pearls, a pale blue seam binding bow and a little brass angel charm.
