STAMPlorations Challenge

Hello! There are so many new and lovely stamp companies in the last few years...there is a new (to me) stamp company called STAMPlorations. My new blog friend and owner/designer of STAMPlorations Shery was kind enough to send me a set a while ago. I was prompted to take it out to play the new challenge (see here) .

I used Simon Says Stamp's Heart Die and created this design with 
And what an awesome stamp set it is! I find these artsy brush strokes so versatile...I used 4 images for this design (small line brush, large brush, scribble circle and sentiment).
Hb2U

 I chose a funky HB2U to go with the design. Creating this card was pretty much child's play!
These brushes basically become your paint brushes and you stamp/paint however you want to. This set is packed with so many possibilities for the price of $6.50! I can see myself reaching for it often!

What do you think? Check out STAMPlorations and I bet you will be impressed!
 Thanks for stopping by!

So fun to see you rocking STAMPlorations! And rock you did. I expected to see that you'd wrapped the heart with twine. So cool to see how you used the stamps. I love that set (especially the sentiment). Greetings from Michigan, BTW.
