The Heart that Gives also Gathers. Isn't that a lovely sentiment? You may not be able to see it very well, but that sentiment borders the left side of this stamp. When we were in Door County a couple of weeks ago, I was snooping in a lovely little confectionary/gift shop and I spied the familiar plastic cases from Stampin' Up's older stamp sets. Of course I had to spend some time looking through the sets and ended up purchasing this very sweet set. Since it has not yet seen ink, I thought I would submit another entry into Darnell's NBUS Challenge. Sadly, my shelves are full of never been used stuff: too many aspirations - too little time!
I sponged some ink on the main panel and wanted to create an abstract of a beautiful sunset with oranges concentrated behind the flower part of the stamped image. I heat embossed the image in black. What next? I played around a bit with adding another element in the bottom right of the card but in the end I decided to just let the sponging and flower image steal the show. A simple border of black and then finally mounting to a card base.
