Ransom Love

The Ways to Use It Challenge over on Split Coast this week was Ransom Style - we were to use any kind of letters in different fonts, shapes and/or sizes (like a ransom note!)

I remembered that I had a bag of chipboard letters in black and white in my 'chipboard' drawer and so I looked to see what words I might be able to make out of what I had.

I wanted to use my brandy new Bold Ornament stamp from Rubbernecker and thought LOVE might be a good word to pair with it. I just added a couple of rhinestones to the ornament to soften the bold clunky letters a bit! My card is 5" x 5" square. I think it came out kind of cool!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I always appreciate when you leave me a comment!

This is so effective - love the colours together and the big stamp behind really is set off by the words.
