Unloved stamp

Happy New Year everyone!  I have had this pansy stamp in my stash for a really long time and I could just never figure out how to use it.  The bold frame intimidated me I think.  But as I was looking for a different stamp, I came across it and decided to give it some love.  And I LOVE how it turned out!  I will definitely be inking this one up again.  I started by inking it up in black and then coloring the flowers and leaves and cutting them out.  Then I stamped it again in versamark and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.  Then layered the colored flowers on top.  Do you have any stamps like this in your stash?  Ones that you just can't seem to make work?
