I used the 7 x 7 inch Leafy Swirl stencil on my 8 x 10 inch plate. This gave me a slightly inked border when I removed the stencil, which I rather liked. I emphasised it with some Black Soot Distress Ink.
I stamped the music onto some copy paper and ripped roughly around it to make a mask for when I did the printing. This leaves a nice white area to stamp it onto later. Like the border, I inked around it afterwards with Black Soot.
The print itself is the second one, after the stencils have been removed. It gives the subtle effect I was after for this card. I also used the Dotty Wave stencil with some metallic gold paint in selected areas. It's one of those things that doesn't photograph very well but gives the card a lovely metallic shimmer.
Once all that was done I stamped the wreath and heat embossed it in gold. The holly berries are coloured in with a red Sakura Glaze pen.
