Hearts for Merry Monday

It's time for another challenge at


It's my turn to choose the challenge this week
and I chose......


This was made with a borrowed stamp.

What a nice friend I have to lend this to me!

This beautiful heart was stamped with Jet Black StazOn and colored
by swiping Stamp n Write Markers on a piece of acetate and
 picking up the color with a Blender Pen.

I touched up the greenery with a darker green and
colored the berries with Real Red.

The gold was added with a Gold Gel Pen.

I hope you'll find a heart, add it to a Christmas card,
and join us at Merry Monday.

Enjoy!

Wow! I'm in love with this card Bonnie, I love, love that stamp that your friend shared with you, it is just beautiful! I love the way you colored it, the added gold and the red berries, the gold bow...all works so well to make this so beautiful. The sentiment is awesome, I really love the sentiment. I don't know if the stamp stamps the black border lines or not, but i love it going around the heart, just pulls the eye right in! Hugs, Brenda
