Sending love

I love this wee stamp and I think it says everything about what home is - family and connection.
I smooshed the background with distress inks and sprayed with glimmer mists.  When dry I stamped and coloured with Reno pens.  Two odd diecut hearts in gold and white.  I tried a red heart but it took the eye away from the mailbox.

Stamp: Hero Arts
hearts are from stash
Distress inks, Glimmermists

This is so sweet. And all that white space is luscious. My favorite part is those two stapled hearts. Fabulous.

I think for those of us who have lived along way from home - the letterbox is a true connection to home. Thanks for playing along at Addicted to CAS this time. x Carolyn
