Inspired Stamps September Release

 Hello Everyone,
It is release week for Inspired Stamps and here is a sneak peak at two of the stamp sets I have had the privilege to work with this week, they and the entire release will be available Friday, September 16th at noon in the Inspired Stamps store.  The two new sets are called Choir Angel (HLO)  and Sing for JoyThe angel's parts are all separate so you can make him any way you would like.  I made him like he was floating in the clouds, singing praise unto the Lord.
Open view with 2 Samuel 22:50 from Sing for Joy set.  The music strip on the front of the card is also from the Sing for Joy set.  The rest of the images are from the Choir Angel set.

Here is a close up of that sweet Choir Angel.  I used Stickles on his wings and halo and colored him with Copic markers.  I sponged clouds in background using a mask.
