Craft Barn Alpha Challenge

Hello everyone, hope you are all enjoying today’s sunshine! I have two for the price of one Craft Barn alpha challenges this time. I missed the deadline for the ‘J’ with a twist of dragonfly so will post that one below this fortnight’s alpha which is a straight forward letter with no twists of anything! The letter is ‘A’ and here is my (very simple) interpretation of it…

Dictionary 05-16 A sig

I do like Acers very much especially in the autumn when they have those beautiful colours if the weather has been cold enough that is.

Materials used:

Wrinkle free method using DI inks – Seedless preserve, Mermaid Lagoon, Fossilized Amber.

Memento Inks – Olive Grove, Cottage Ivy, Morocco

Stamp – Inkylicious Oriental Awakening

Computer generated Dictionary definition.


‘J’ with a dragonfly:

I went very simple for this challenge and printed off an image of a Junk boat and stamped the dragonfly on one of the sails; as this type of boat was used predominantly in Asia and dragonflies are usually associated with Asian culture they seemed to go well together!!
