Craft Barn Alpha Challenge

For this fortnight the alpha challenge on Craft Barn is the letter “U”.  A quick look at the entries posted so far show that there are some very original words depicted, sadly mine won’t be one of them – yet again! I think my brain is soaring with the seagulls, do wish it would come home.

dictionary-11-16-u-sig

The only item slightly (?) original – can you quantify originality??? – is the background stamp which is homemade.  Using dies I cut funky foam into various shapes to use as background stamps. The foam die cuts were mounted onto cushioning such as EZ Mount or Kling On; they do make great background stamps.

Materials Used:

Inks – Versafine Onyx Black

            Archival Jet Black

           Versacolor Old Rose

Stamps – Viva Decor Capital Alphabet

                Katzelkraft Autumn

Craft Barn Alpha Challenge

It took me ages to come up with an idea for the Alpha Challenge at Craft Barn this time; nothing would spring to mind then I was rootling through a box of die cuts and came across some gate and fence die cuts I had purchased from the well known auction site! Light bulb moment – I had my word!!! The letter was ‘G’ so I had Gate.

It may not easily be seen in the photo but I opened the gate and used a small piece of foam to keep it open, hoping to invite you in to view the statue!

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

Path

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
