The Dove of Peace Card by Dot Leathbridge

 Hi everyone,
welcome to the Rubber Dance blog.

Today my card uses a dove from the 'A Little Birdie'
stamp set.
It's in stark contrast to the weather outside at the moment!
We have hail, gail force winds and lots of rain.
Nature is trying to throw everything at us at the moment lol.

So naturally my mind went to something a little calmer.

The circle is made using distress inks on a gel plate, using colours
from our Mood Board this month.
The combination of yellows and browns are one that works so 
beautifully together.

Here are a couple of close ups for you.

The flowers and leaves from Loose Florals #1 are used
to create a pretty border around the circle.

The little circles are from Whale Wishes!
As always, the Rubber Dance stamp sets always have
so many extra little elements that can be used in many ways.
They've been coloured with H2O's for a little shimmer.

Those that know me well will be surprised that I've added
some shimmer lol.

The bird is from the A Little Birdie stamp set.
I cut him in half so that he looks like he is nestled among the flowers.
The flowers have been coloured with water colours.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing this card.

The stamps used are:

A quick reminder about our Mood Board for June.

You'll find the Mood Board challenge over on our
facebook group, Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge.
You'll also see heaps of wonderful inspiration shared in the group.

Another quick reminder ...
if you are in Australia and looking for Rubber Dance stamps
then you can find a huge range through the Ink Art Designs
on-line stamp shop.

Wishing everyone a dry, safe and quiet place
to craft (the wind here is quite loud lol).

Fabulous and love how you used the DI on the gel plate to create the background. x
