Today I am featuring this stunning and classic holiday stamp, Hark! (H13578), along with other new and current stamps.


Hark! is a very detailed stamp which has the stunning angel in front of the sheet music background.
I stamped the Hark! image on white cardstock and sponged Distress inks from the edges in towards the angel, leaving her as white as possible.  I wanted to create the look of marble, so I added some shading with warm gray Copic markers. 
The card base was stamped with the Crackle Cover-a-Card background stamp (CC277) in Distress Oxide ink.  I also used a foam blender to add color in areas of the card base.  I trimmed out the Hark! panel and layered it with patterned papers of similar size. and finished it with dyed-to match ribbon (dyed with reinkers) and a small tag, stamped with the pine tuft from Winter Elements (CL690) and the Season's Greetings sentiment from Holiday Words (3189-LG).  Can you tell I love the set, Holiday Words??  I think I've reached for it nearly everyday this week!  It's such a lovely greeting set.  It's perfect!

Thanks for visiting again today.   Your next stop in the hop should be Daniela Dobson's blog.
