Serena's Heart

This month's Stampsmith Challenge is Ribbons and Lace and was set by Lynne Moncrieff. As I am always inspired by my friend, I had to do a Lynne-style piece! I used the Serena photostamp from the Stampsmith stamped onto glossy card and layered it onto a lace covered piece of canvas I cut into a heart shape. I colored bits of lace, seam binding ribbon and ribbon roses with Antique Linen distress stain and Rose Tea Glimmer Mist. I formed the ribbon into a swag on top and a frame around the picture and added pearls for accents.

I could only dream of being talented enough to create a beauty such as this.
I am having a ladylike swoon at the moment as this is simply breathtaking.
Beautiful use of the stain and mist to colour match the trims.
You have quite blown me away.
I know you are incredibly busy so appreciate it even more that you found the time to join TSC this month.

It's so elegant...so feminine...so beautiful! (Somewhere, I have that image in a drawer of stamps...I've never inked it, and it's at least 3 years old.)

Love the way you framed the image with the lace and added the pearls. Gorgeous! Really fun shape too and love how you completely covered the heart with lace. Thanks so much for sharing your project with us at the Stampsmith Challenge.
