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

Silence

Silence

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.

Dazzles

Dazzles

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.

Quotes and Lyrics Challenge

quotes and lyrics 'Up'

quotes and lyrics ‘Up’

quote and lyrics 'Smile'

quote and lyrics ‘Smile’

On the Craft Barn blog there is a new challenge running for this year, all the details can be found here. Briefly this challenge is to use one or both of the words posted, the words are to be in a quote or lyrics. The words for this first fortnight are ‘Up’ and ‘Smile’ and I decided to use both of them on either side of a 4 x 4 inch piece of card to make up into a book later.  The ‘Up’ words appear within the lyrics of the song from Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes – a favourite song of mine. The ‘Smile’ quotes are from the internet; in fact there were so many lovely quotes I couldn’t choose just one. Leslie made a book that I won on her giveaway many moons ago that is my quote book, any saying that touches a chord is written into that book.

Supplies used :

Stamps – Creative Expressions crackle

               – Art Impressions G689 Trees

             –     PaperArtsy plate 5 Letter

             –   Inkylicious  Oriental Awakening birds

Inks – Versamagic Mango, Persimmon, Red Magic

                 – Distress Ink  Broken China, Bundled Sage

                 – Whispers Green Leaf, Rio Purple     

                 – Archival Black
