This sketch had me worried when I first saw it as I am a bit anal and that off centre panel sent me for a tail spin LOL. However, as I thought pondering what to use for this sketch, I realized I had a wonderful Hero Arts heart flourish background stamp I bought last year and have never used (hanging my head in shame...). I just love hearts, and the hearts combined with the flourish on this stamp just makes me happy :D
Silver embossing was the first thing that came to mind for this and then I decided to go with sparkly silver embossing powder for some extra glitter. I wanted the stamp to be the focal image so I made a very small sentiment using my nesties. Finished things off with some sheer, silver ribbon and I was good to go. I toyed with embossing the background panel but couldn't find out that worked so I opted not to use one as it detracted from the main image.
Four Verve sketches down and just one to go!! Thanks so much for stopping by (((hugs))) and have a wonderful day!
