Rose-heart hand-carved stamp

I carved this stamp last weekend.  Hope you like it!


  • Stamp carved using Stampin' Up! tools and Speedball red rubber
  • Stamp inked with Ranger Archival in Jet Black on Strathmore watercolor paper
  • Stamp and sentiment colored with DOx in Lucky Clover and Candied Apple 
  • Viva Paper Pearls in Anthracite added around heart
  • Recollections charcoal paper used in the background.  I chose a charcoal instead of black because of the faded look of the stamp on the watercolor paper.  I think I need to look into getting a stamping platform... I've just never thought I was much of a stamper... but now I've had a few projects that caused me to think about it.
I'll share this at the following two challenges:
