Box Bow

For this project I've used all three of the Walesby Hearts so you can see the difference in size and how well they go together.




I've used Pumpkin Pigment Ink for the stamping and clear embossed them to add a little shine.  The pumpkin is a gorgeous new ink colour - an orangey-red which will be great for Halloween but it's too good to save for that!!  





I stamped the large hearts with about 1" between the points, and then smaller gaps for the others and stuck them together with foam pads to give a little height.  Instead of ribbon I've stamped the Checkerboard Border stamp in Pumpkin and wrapped the parcel with that and used a small section in the middle of the bow too.
