After I loved the last round stamp so much, it inspired me to get even more of these beautiful round shaped stamps from artist ching-chou kuik of Sweet Pea Stamps. These stamps are stunning artwork and fit beautifully using Spellbinder's Nestibilities as backgrounds. The stamp used in this card comes from a sheet called "The Seahorse". I wanted to make her hair look like the water so I used copic markers in four shades of blue to color her hair. Then, I used a dark brown copic markers to color in the background of the stamp, as well as the leaves and the outfit of the maiden.
I chose a wonderful saying from Plate #24 that says, "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. Helen Keller" I added two adorable brown hearts, metallic burnt gold border-punched paper, and a few buttons to coordinate with the color of the seahorses; these buttons make the seahorses in the image pop out of the design.

Hope you have a heartfelt day!
