Flower Power with Stampotique


This time I thought I would make an ATC for the Stampotique challenge. I decided to use the dangling heart stamp in a different way and thought they look rather fun as flowers. As it was an ATC I could also use up scraps of inked paper I had created from early challenges.

Since the challenge was Flower Power, the time of "make love not war"' I felt the heart flowers were more than appropriate. Eerily (how I love the way this word is spelt and sounds) I also felt the hearts resembled crosses on graves symbolic with war and death.

I was quite pleased with this as I felt it looked fresh and fun yet poignant.

Fab LAura. I love the sentiment. I'm all for letting weeds do their thing in amongst my cultivated what nots. Some are just so gorgeous. My Dad always says a weed is just a plant in the wrong place.
