Crafty Individuals September challenge "Hanging About"

The theme for the crafty Individuals Challenge this month is "Hanging about".
This is the first time I am taking part and I decided to make a heart shaped hanger.
I free cut a heart shape out of cardstock. Coated it with Gesso, inked the edges, then used one of the Crafty Individuals swirl stamps around the edges. The image is from one of their glossy A4 sheets.

Clicking on the title of this post will take you to the Crafty Individuals blog where you can see more creative entries.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
