First, my ornament inspiration!...
I got to play with the ANGELIC set of stamps. I picked up this wooden heart ornament at Michaels in all of their new products for Christmas projects.
I wanted to keep my stamped image very simple in the coloring so I used some of my very lightest Copic markers and kept the color combo very limited. When I had it all colored, I sprayed it with some Smooch Spritz. Plus I added some gold paint for the decoration at the neck line of their little outfits.
I had downloaded a free piece of sheet music from Crafty Secrets and printed that out on white cardstock. Next I took one of the stencils from Layers of Color and sponged it with brown ink. I also sprayed this with the Smooch Spritz. The outside rim of the wooden heart was painted with a pink paint and also spritzed so it wasn't too pink.
I also wanted to create a card using the same set of stamps so you could see more uses for the stamps.
Again, I wanted to keep the image very simple in the coloring so I slightly colored the angel and then sprayed the entire image with the Smooch Spritz and cut it out. LOVE the glimmer from the Spritz. I embossed the kraft colored corner with my Cuttlebug and the pink patterned paper is from Echo Park. The corner is punched one time with a 4-in-1 Kreaxions punch.
