Hung on a tree

When I saw this stamp set in the fall inspiration catalog from the angel company I just knew I had to have it.  Of course I think I have to have most stamps. lol I have lots of ideas on different ways to use this stamp but here is my first.

This set is called "hung on a tree" It is just so elegant. It is stamped in peeled paint distress ink and then I used a brush and water to spread the ink around. I added a little bit of copics in the holly to add some deeper color. Then I added crystal stickles on most of the swirls and some gold stickles on the top and dots around the tree. There are red stickles where the berries are. All the edges are distressed. The beads on the side are from Queen & Co. I don't remember where the dp is from.
