Paperbabe Stamps Challenge 22 - Photo Inspiration

Hi everyone, it's Challenge 22 at Paperbabe Stamps Blog with a photo inspirations as the theme this time. There's a lovely prize to be one so we hope you'll join us.

I've created a mixed media decorative wood heart shape from Artcuts and stamped a floral border with Rose Border, Art Quote 'Art', Oriental Zen, A lot like Christmas Paperbabe Stamps using Luxe and Versamagic pigment inks. I added black and white pen work on the leaf shapes and also coloured them with some ink to fill in the outline shapes giving a watercolour effect, I also did this with the Rose outline shapes.

I stamped the quote in Luxe ink and then outlined with a fine black pen to allow it to stand out a bit. I edged the heart with black and white inks and the darker blue Luxe ink.

To complete the piece I added ribbon and all over of the Floral border I brushed with a wink of stellar pen for a subtle sparkle.

Have a good weekend,
