Rubber Dance Colour Challenge - April

Colour Challenge at Rubber Dance

Wow, it's the start of a new month already and with it brings a new challenge
at Rubber Dance.
April sees us with a very classical colour combo.

This card was just a lot of playing around and having fun with different mediums.
The background is brayered Fresco Finish paints. 
Some stamping using the heart from the Beautiful Words set has been randomly stamped with gesso with a little shading added around each one to make them pop a little.

The words were added on tissue paper. 
By doing this way the chances of the words being straight was in my favour.

The flowers were stamped straight onto the background
but they seemed to disappear a little 
so I stamped them again onto white card and cut out the flower part for a more striking white effect. Attaching them and trimming off the excess from the edges.

Weed Love for a border, some splashes of white paint and
that was all that was needed.

Stamps used from Rubber Dance are:

Antique Botanicals      

Beautiful Words

Really beautiful Dot, though I don't understand this obsession with stamping straight lol - where would we be without the tissue paper (which I can also stick on wonky) Have a brilliant weekend xx
