Holiday Romance?

I was intrigued by the title of this weeks Sunday Stampers Challenge, and, for no known reason thought of secret holiday romances. Actually it might have been because I was sorting out a few bags of collage type stuff and found some Artchix freebies including a picture of a luvy duvy couple.

Loved ripping up an old box to make the background, which I have lightly painted with Kaiser Antique White, and Adirondack Aqua Dabber, plus a light spray of Crafty Notions Champagne Spray. Next I cut a background from my Shabby Vintage stack, which was actually quite hard as I love these papers so much I just want to look at them!! I then used a couple of Tim Holtz Mini Classics stamps on the background.

The torn up love letter is some paper distressed with vintage photo, and the stamped with a Paper Artsy script stamp. My Artchix freebie photo is also given the Vintage Photo treatment and then the edges are dipped in Platinum UTEE to make the frame. The heart is grunge paper covered with a bit of a french dictionary, and again inked with VP.

I have used an Ideology Journalling Ticket which has been scrunched up and inked, plus an Ideology lock and key. The flower I think is by Prima, but have had it ages and lost the packaging, and a couple of Maya Road trinket pins. I like the little hanger, and wish I could rember where I got it.

Now I've got to think about how to do one of those linky things, as I'm going to be brave and join in the Sunday Stamper Challenge!
