There's a saying in design that lines love curves. This means that if a design is too straight and right-angled, add curves. If it's too curvy, add straight lines. The idea, I think, is to create a bit of tension between the two to add interest to a design.
This lined shadow stamp from Hero Arts is old. Very old. But adding some curvy flowers, bling, and a simple sentiment certainly freshen it up and make it happy.
How-To Tips: I cut this card down to fit the shadow, leaving an even border around it and building from there. The resulting card is 4.25" wide by 3 7/8" tall.
