Bombshell Stamps~Hearts On Fire

It took me a while to go through my paper stash and find just what I was looking for to showcase this set. I finally settled on some Daisy D's and FontWerks. There's also a little Basic Black and Confetti. I stamped the heart in VersaMark and embossed in detail black. Then I colored it with Baroque Burgundy, Creamy Caramel and More Mustard using the pad lids and a wet paintbrush. Next, I dabbed a sponge into my Aged Mahogany Distress pad, then dampened it and added the messy stuff. After that, I gave it a couple of shots with my homemade sparkle spray in Candy Apple Red. I also sprayed the chipboard with the same spray after sponging it with Aged Mahogany. On the black ledger paper, I embossed some of the flames with Ranger's Holographic. The word "treasure" is from one of those MM tins. I haven't used mine in over a year, and ran across it while I was rummaging around in my stamp room. There are LOTS of words, in different fonts, so I think I'll leave it out on my desk for a while. Everything old is new again, you know! Stay tuned for new stamps from Bombshell,Shannon has all kinds of ideas in the works!!

I'll be coming back to 'borrow' from this when I receive my set of hearts I just ordered ... what a layout, Woman! You always have that perfect touch of distressed or grunge or whatever the right word is ... loving the fluorish in the lower left corner. And all the colors!
