a love song....

Hi there, STAMPlorations has a new sketch-#7 for you all to follow and play along with this fortnight.
I used the fabulous stamp set called...
Patchwork Frenzy.
I used the heart square from the set.
The wonderful, very clever thing about this set is you can use the individual stamps separately or they are designed to repeat stamp as I have done to create the long border as in my card.
Watercolour paper, Water colour paint, Adirondack black Ink, Sentiment stamp.
For more  info and details on how to enter and join in with the fun.......please head on over to the 
STAMPlorations Challenge Blog.
