Granpa traveling

What a lovely granpa - pocket watch and tickets on the ready.

He's traveling with nana, who points out there is still time enough and she would like to take her photos.

Mamma ja pappa matkalla Joensuuhun. Pappalla on jo piletit ja hän kiiruhtaa mammaa, mutta tämäpä tuumaa, että juna ei lähdekään ihan heti ja hänpä aikoo ottaa kuvia. (Kameraa ei ehkä heti tunnista, se on vanhanaikainen haitarikamera.) Kiitokset sukulaiskuvasta Piikulle! Kaksi korttiani TJK-haasteeseen / sukulaiset.

Rubber Dance Arts, September challenge
For Rubber Dance Art challenge, here's the breakdown: I used  July colors (with some darker shades for the photos). I collect stamps, and after dissolving them I am left with these lovely wavy postal imprints and circles with names of towns. I have been collecting the prettiest ones. I now collaged them onto the card, then painted over with transparent gel paints and some diluted acrylics so the postage lines would stay visible. I stamped with Rubber Dance stamps Round in circles. It's a useful set to own, I have used it for sea life and flowers before this.
Thanks for looking!
