The Craft Barn's Quotes and Lyrics
Well I've finally had some time to get crafting and have done this fortnight's challenge as well as two postcards that I had missed. For full details of the challenge go to The Craft Barn's blog.
I'll start with the current week 14 where the words to use are IMAGINATION and/or LOGIC. I decided to make it easy for myself and use my Tim Holtz stamp with Imagination in it. The background was an inky blue piece of scrap card - I over stamped and clear embossed with the Splat stamp and then blended on Faded Jeans Distress. I carried on the Milky Way type feel of this with some stars, rays and more splats - all stamps from Tim Holtz's Bitty Grunge set.
In week 13 the words were PATH and/or HORIZON and I've chosen this Irish Blessing. I've used Oak House Studio products for this one - Bobby's Grey Ink in a Bottle sprayed through a brick wall mask to create a path and stamps from the Sketchy Flowers set. I've used the solid flower stamp inked in various colours for the background then created a bunch of flowers with the outline stamps and the leaves. I've cut some green card for the grass and added some Bazzill Edges for the frame.
The other week I missed was week 11 where we had a choice between MOUNTAIN and/or MISTAKE. I really struggled to find an interesting quote that I could depict so in the end I went with this quote from John Muir. I've blended with Distress inks to create a very rough mountain scene (Broken China, Faded Jeans, Weathered Wood, Bundled Sage & Mowed Lawn) and then stamped Tim Holtz's Fir Trees with Pine Needles Distress for my forest.
An eclectic mix I think you will agree but I'm so pleased I'm now up-to-date. Thanks so much for coming to visit and for any comments you leave - they are always very much appreciated!
