The Craft Barn’s Q&L Challenge no 14 – Imagination and Logic

The  Q & L challenge  no 14 is Imagination and/or Logic. To find out more about this challenge or  would like to join in  here is the link to The Craft Barn’s Q&L Challenge blog.

I seem to be apologising a lot just lately, i just need and extra day in the week just for me  – that’s it! , an eight day week. If we shorten each day by  just over 3 hrs.  it would give us an extra day between Sunday and Monday and could call  it Meday or Playday lol. Dream on

At least I still have an imagination though not sure what it was doing while I was working on my tag for this  challenge.

I found a quote by Henri Poincore  “It is by logic that we prove, but by intuition that we discover” which I liked and decide to “go with it ”  (intuition, lol) even though I did find a few with both words.

I printed off a picture of the milky way onto velum and inked it up a bit more. IMAG1018

Then  mounted it onto some silver metallic card to “brighten” it up.

So far so good, now what stamps can I use to show discoveries in our time?  Oh dear, the stamps in my collection don’t quite do the Milky way justice, but at least I got to have a play with shrink plastic. Not used this in ages

The light bulb is actually the small Clarity silhouette balloon stamp which I just cut out and inked up on the reverse, I’m actually quite pleased with that. I used a flat white gel pen to write with which worked well too.

Going to try and do some visiting now.

  6. This is such a fabulous piece, love the way you have incorporated all those gorgeous shrink plastic images on a beautifully coloured Milky Way background. Very creative.

  7. The Milky Way never looked so good. And your quote fits it perfectly. I haven’t played with shrink plastic in ages, so it was fun to see those images, too. Great job.
