Silent Night

I really dug deep into the squirrel's stash for this card.  I have so may wood mount stamps that are gathering dust, so I decided to pull out an "oldie, but goodie" for this Christmas card.

Just a Couple Details:
  • A friend had given me this photocopy of Silent Night sheet music.  With my fingers crossed for a clean image, I stamped the angel directly on the music with Jet Black StazOn ink.
  • Our lovely angel is colored with chalk pastels...another item that has been languishing in the stash.  The edges of the music are tattered with a Tim Holtz paper distresser and aged with Old Paper Distress Ink.  A light spritz of Perfect Pearls Mist sets the chalks and adds a soft glimmer that unfortunately was not captured by the camera.
