Love travel

Valentine's day is the big event on the blogs and as I have already something prepared I opted for a love of a different kind....

The Rubber Dance colour challenge for February has a theme of Love and the colours Turquoise Chocolate Brown and Deep Red. I went overboard with these dark colours and the result is ... well... dark!

This also meant I had to do most of the stamping in white acrylic which doesn't do justice to the details of the stamps.

For my background I used Gelatos, overstamping images from the Rubber Dance Travel plate, stamps I won recently on their blog.

I added a heart die-cut which I painted with brown paint, a layer of crackle (Imagination Crafts) and a top coat of white paint. I embossed a piece of metal with the word Travel as a finishing touch.

I am also entering the Imagination Crafts and the Live and Love Crafts challenges.
Thanks for coming by,


  1. REALLY ENJOYING your background which gives your white stamping a fantastic pop!

    Your heart is neautiful as is the embossed word, a winner in my book Christine:-) xxx

  2. You have achieved wonderful depth of colour Christine and as the lady above said, it really makes the white pop.
