It Is Well With My Soul

Good morning!  Hope you all have had a wonderful week!

Got a little sneak peek of a new stamp coming out Feb 1st from Our Daily Bread designs!  
Sheet music to the beautiful old hymn, It Is Well With My Soul! 

I wanted to try the Belleek technique that I enjoyed so much earlier this week!  I inked up my Cuttlebug Textile Texture folder with pink ink and then sponged off a little of it to help make it more muted.  Once I ran it through my bug, it was still a little too pink.  So, I went about trying to tone down the piece by painting it with white acrylic paint using a very light touch.  Then I also painted it with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist.  And then I even sprayed it with Pearl Glimmer Mist!  I finally had the shade and look I was going for.  

So then I did the same applications to each die cut.  I've used the Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish, Spellbinders Squares, Fleur de Lis Squares, Blossoms Tags and Accents and the angel wings are from an old Spellbinders ATC die set.  The heart is made of wood and is also painted.  I stamped the music on the back ground of the card, stamping if off first on scrap paper and then also did the same painting technique to this piece.  You should have seen my hands!  After it had all dried, I put everything together, and added the little silver bow and tiny pearls. 

Here is a little tip:  I got a little too much paint on the sentiment tag, which covered up the song title too much.  So I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp it again which helped a lot!  What a wonderful tool!!!

I am sharing this card in the following challenges:

Thank you so much for looking and I hope you have a beautiful weekend!
