The Holly & The Ivy Journal Page

Its been a while since I've done anything in my art journal so decided to make a Christmas page now that Christmas songs are being played in most places I go.
I do like this song the holly & the ivy.
I wanted to have a try at working on a black page like I've seen plenty of others do on the internet.
I'm pleased with the out come of my page.
I used a black acrylic paint to cover a page & then with a gold ink pad I had I used a Dylusions holly stamp to decorate around the page.
I've coloured in the holly leaves with a green Posca pen & then roughly out lined the leaves using a gold & white Posca pen.
I used a glittery red gel pen to colour the berries.
The Ivy was cut from a Tim Holtzs dies & the bird is also a stamp from Tim Holtzs.
I stamp the words using a white ink pad & out lined them with the gold Posca pen again.
The music note at the bottom of the page was made using a stencil & out lined in white.
