Well another 2 weeks has gone by and the new words on The Craft Barn Quotes and Lyrics Challenge are SENSATION and/or MOON. Lots of good sensation quotes but no images popped into my head so I've chosen Moon and these lyrics from Bombers' Moon by Mike Harding.
For those that don't know Mike Harding aka The Rochdale Cowboy is a folk singer, writer, comedian etc who had TV series in the late 1970s. His father was a Navigator in the RAF and was killed in WWII. I thought the words were very poignant as we are so close to Remembrance Day.
I've used the Poppy stamp from Chocolate Baroque's Flora and Fauna set, inked with Onyx Black Versafine, clear embossed and then coloured with markers. I've then masked the flowers with a circle to create the moon and blended over with Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks. The lyrics were just printed off the computer.
Thanks for looking and for your comments. I'll leave you with a photo I took of the poppies at the Tower of London - this was late September, all the grass has now been covered with the 888,000+ poppies and the last one will be planted on the 11/11.
