Claritystamp Challenge - Love and Romance

Time for another new Challenge over on the Claritystamp Blog.  This month it's Love and Romance.

Thank you to everyone who entered the January Challenge, so many fabulous entries, it gets harder to choose the Top 5 each month.  Huge Congratulations to the a Winner.

Why not have a go this month - you could win a £50 Clarity Voucher!

I took the opportunity this month to use my Meltpot in my Design Team piece and this is what I came up with,

The heart was made by pouring gold UTEE over the Clarity Heart Stamp which I'd inked with Black Archival.  When it had cooled I removed the stamp and rubbed over with Treasure Gold gilding wax.  This certainly made the pattern pop.

My idea was that as it's Valentines Day it would be a good opportunity to use my Postcard set of stamps.

All was stamped onto Ivory Centura Pearl Card and mounted onto dark brown and Kraft Card.

I hope you decide to enter the Challenge - who knows you could be next months Winner!
