A fine romance

I am showing a collage for Crafty Individuals today. I started with the lovely new stamp (CI - 402) they released earlier in the year called 'Just be my Friend' and made a collage board.


I began with masks and texture paste and when dry added some watered down distress inks and also blended distress ink through a mask


I collected lots of ephemera and elements that I though I might use and kept to a black and white theme.


To create a more vintage feel I painted and blended some of the images with some walnut stain distress ink and I stamped the bicycle with distress paint and a text stamp.

I started to build the collage wanting to create a story and a scene of two young lovers, enjoying their time together .......

 ...... and being in love.


I included the Eiffel tower and postmark to represent the city of love, who knows perhaps they are on their honeymoon.


This is obviously a fine romance and a special moment in time.

There are still a few days for you to enter the challenge and once you have entered you can claim 25% off your next order.

Happy Sunday.
