Weathered Love

Well, as we enter the month of LOVE, let's get into the mood!   I covered a diecut  in Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick distress inks. Then I sprayed it with some pink perfect pearls mist concoction created by mixing perfect pearls, ink refill and water in a misting bottle; it gives a nice glimmer. I stamped some background script with Worn Lipstick, then overstamped the Love definition and some swirls and scrolls with Fired Brick.  I used all of the same distress inks on my texture embossed grunge paper, but you get quite a different look..  Add a couple of turtle doves - being romantic here - and there you have it! 

 This is my entry for Compendium of Curiosities #29, Weathered Wood Grunge, on the lovely Linda's blog, Studio L3. Not sure that I got the wood part of this, but I sure did get grungy!

This is also my entry for Wednesday Stamper, Inky Backgrounds.  Judging by the ink on my hands, this qualifies!

Do hop over to these fabulous blogs and check out all of the inspiring artwork, there are a lot of talented people out there!  Cheers.


  1. This definitely put me in the mood for Valentine's Day, Rhonda! What a sweet, lovely piece. The weathered wood grunge looks awesome on the hearts-- the colors are GORGEOUS! The little lovebirds are darling, and the background card is exquisite.
