A Holiday Romance and Going Cubist for Happy Daze

We all love to read a good holiday romance and this is no exception.


Stick and Stickette met on holiday in Portsmouth and it was love at first sight.......aaaaaaahhhhh.
One evening on the way home after a gorgeous meal down at the Wharf,  Stick proposed to her......and of course she said yes.

No date for the wedding has been set yet, but in anticipation I have made this label for their honeymoon luggage as am sure they will need one, don't you ?

Formula for the tag is a brayered background, Chicken wire screen, acrylic paint, distress inks, Stickles and the stamps are Inkadinkado plus Two Sticks by Stampotique.

CUBIST SILHOUETTES


Plus I snuck in a sneaky one mainly because I adore the colors.  Bought this stamp by Lost Coast Design quite a while ago from HD,  but had only stamped her in Sepia.  Stamping her various colors gave her a new lease of life.  Hope you like her like this.


Looking forward to seeing your take on this months theme over at Happy Daze.  Take care of yourselves and will see you soon, Annette x
