Music To My Ears!

This adorable Cherub collage is from Scrolls Work Stamps! I think it works out perfectly for the Technique Junkies "clipped corners and we are entering this at the Artist Stamper Christmas challenge. This was stamped on an ivory cardstock with Stazon. I used water based markers to color the leaves, flowers, bow, horns and wings, oh and the little pinecones!! Then I added some Spica glitter and the leaves have an extra layer of metallic pencil. The little Cherubs were colored with chalk to achieve a softness. I then added the clipped and colored piece to a piece of black cardstock and trimmed to give it that pop! The red background was embossed and I thought about highlighting it, but honestly did not want to take away from the collage. I decided to use a green base to bring out the color of the leaves.

I hope you are all ready for the Holidays and enjoying your time with family and friend. There is still so much I need to do, but I decided I won't stress over what might not get done. Thank you so much for the visit and I am wishing you all the best and happiest of Holidays!
