Q&L #13 (unlucky for some)

Craft Barn’s quotes and lyrics challenge words are Horizon and/or Path for this fortnight. Ideas came easily and so did quotes and these cards have been made for three days but finding the time to upload the photos and blog a post took some doing! Sadly lyrics didn’t spring to mind at all so I have had to use two quotes.

Horizon

Horizon

Isn’t this quote so apt? It is similar to the one my husband uses all the time when not completing jobs “It is better to travel hopefully than arrive”! However as I frequently tell him I love the ‘F’ word – Finished- but it falls on deaf ears.

Supplies:

quote from Brainy Quote

Inks – Versacolor Sea Foam, Fresh Green , Green Tea and Green

Versamagic – Aegean Blue, Ocean Depth, Night Sky and Hint of Pesto

             Versafine Onyx Black

             Memento Rich Cocoa

Stamps – Inkylicious Take Flight

                   PaperArtsy HP1005

Had this stamp for a while and this is only its second outing. Groucho Marx’s take on the old adage is amusing. This cat reminds me of the one we used to have and also of another cat that lived down in the hamlet who frequently went into the church when a service was in progress to say hello to everyone and on our daughter and son-in-law’s wedding he came around to greet everyone and get into a few photos.

Supplies:

Stamps – Inkylicious Playful Cats

Inks – Colorbox Primary

             Versafine Onyx Black

             Memento Rich Cocoa

Fine liner pen

Quote from Brainy Quote

Q & L #8

Here I am skimming in by the skin of my teeth! Broadband connection has not been playing well lately so words will need to be had with someone.

Thank you to everyone who commented on Q&L #7, so many lovely comments which were much appreciated. I don’t think I am going to get the chance to comment on many this time.

Okay enough drivel – the words over on the Craft Barn challenge are Hurt and/or Knowledge. For the song lyrics I chose Love hurts by the Everly Brothers although many people sang this including Jim Capaldi, Cher, Nazareth and Roy Orbison, I think we have three versions of this song and like all of them.

Love Hurts

The actual card isn’t as pale as the photo shows and you may just be able to see the little bird’s tears.

Supplies:

Inks – Versamagic in Aegean Blue, Ocean Depth, Night Sky, Sahara Sand, Red Magic

Stamps – All the stamps were freebies from the Craft Stamper magazine are by Artistic Stamper, Stamp Addict,

Q&L #5 Road and Art

Over at The Craft Barn the quote and lyric challenge this fortnight is Road and /or Art. So far I have been able to use both words of the challenge; I try to find a song lyric for one side of the 4 x 4 inch card and a suitable quote for the other. When I first saw the new words a line from a song immediately popped into my mind but it took a few days for an image to hatch!

Nowhere really does exist!

Nowhere really does exist!

All I can remember of the song is just this one line and that is from the ‘chorus’! After mulling for a few days it suddenly occurred to me that we had visited Nowhere; it is a tiny area on St Mary’s, Isles of Scilly (highlighted in yellow on the map) and of course I couldn’t resist adding the hedgehogs! The background is a piece of shaving foam marbled paper – shaving foam with alcohol inks dripped in and mixed – the copy paper used the second generation inks.

Supplies used:

Inks – Versamagic Hint of Pesto

         – Distress Ink Black soot

         – Archival Jet Black

        – Memento Rich Cocoa

Stamps – Inkylicious Take Flight

               – Cute Companions grasses

                – Penny Black Tiny Wishes

               – PaperArtsy birds and branches

              -Tree unknown!

"All Art is but imitation of nature"

“All Art is but imitation of nature”

This is a bit of a wishy washy piece but there wasn’t enough time to re-do it so it has to stand!

Supplies used:

Inks – various Versamagic

Stencil – Imagination Crafts Flourish

Stamp by Stampin’ Up (Thank you Leslie!!)
