hark the herald angels sing

Hello there. I have found some time for a quick post. Once again this was inspired by the LIM challenge. The technique I learnt at Pauline Butcher's workshop this weekend.

For this to work it is important to have a stamping platform and that the card is butted up tightly to the edge so that when the script is overstamped it remains crisp.
I used salty ocean, mustard seed and picked raspberry distress ink, stamped and spritzed. Once dry I overstamped with same colours.

I dried it well and used an antistatic bag over it. I stamped angel in black archival and clear embossed. I coloured in trumpet with gold sparkle pen and used the clear one on the wings. So easy but very effective.
So once again I hope I left enough white space, hugs, Theresa xx.
