DCM little extra - Gimme Some Lovin'

For your little extra this week at
we'd like you to put some LOVE into your cards. Wedding, Anniversary, Engagement or simply to say "I love You" - there are lots of opportunities to get lovey-dovey and slushy, after all, "All you need is Love", you know!
Make sure you check out what the other DT girls have come up with,
You'll LOVE them :O)
So here is my take on the dare, I'm lovin using Gesso at the mo... I just love the way it can be almost translucent in places, almost like 'frosted glass',
esp shows up really well on dark BG like this..
and I reckon that the rougher you put it on the better it looks!
Lovely bits I've used are - Bazzill Cardstock, Jo Sonja's Gesso, Heidi Swapp 'love' stamp,Bella chipboard brackets, K&Company Stickers, Collections chipboard heart, EK Success Alpha Stamps, brad, Acrylic Paint to stamp the 'love' stamp with, computer generated words, Versa Magic Jumbo Java Inkpad, & my sewing machine.

So have you Dared to DARE yet?... Come on I dare you!!!!

You have inspired me to get the gesso out again, and be a bit bolder with it. Hope the teaching is as inspiring for you as it is for your pupils.
Great card again, Gillian.
