Q & L Challenge 3

Aaargh I’m not doing well with this challenge, time flies passed too quickly. Here I was thinking I have just made it for number three only to find number 4 s up already! However I am going to add Q & L’s numbers 2 and 3 here anyway to prove I have done them. What am I wittering on about? The Craft Barn’s Quotes and Lyrics challenge.

For the third Q&L the words were Strong and Miss

Strong quote

Strong quote

On white card I brushed Distress Inks Vintage Photo and Spiced Marmalade, the quote was printed directly onto the card. In Vintage Photo is stamped the harlequin design from PaperArtsy Letters (plate 5) and the statue is from Creative Expressions Lost Garden and stamped in Archival black ink.



The background to this card was brushed with Versamagic Aegean Blue and Ocean Depth. The stars were stamped in Brilliance Cosmic Copper; the leaves (Oriental Awakenings) is stamped in Versamagic Red Magic and Hint of Pesto with the moon/clouds stamped in Archival black.

Q & L 2 Silence & Dazzle



I chose the lyrics Silence is Golden for this theme so I combined an image of Tutankhamun who is not only silent but whose mask was richly decorated in Gold! The words are computer generated; the background is decorated paper to which I added gold embossing. The images are raised on foam pads.



This was a difficult quote to locate! The background inks are brushed on and I used Versamagic Aegean Blue, Ocean Depth and Persimmon. The images were stamped in Archival black and a little Hint of Pesto brushed over the woman.

Thank you for looking x
