The Craft Barn Q&L Challenge 20 and 21
The Q & L Challenge is a fortnightly challenge run by The Craft Barn. Each fortnight starting on a Sunday we are given 2 words and we have to use one or both of them in a Quote or Lyric which has to used on your artwork which can be anything from a journal page to cards, tags etc. for full details of the challenge and rules of entry etc here is the link to the Craft barns Q & L Challenge.
The words for Challenge 20 were Destiny and Gift, and it was my destiny to totally miss the deadline for the challenge. I had finally got round to choosing my quote, but was still deciding what to do with it when up popped a new blog post from The Craft Barn Challenge telling me that it was now Challenge 21 and that the new words were Hug and Nowhere. Well I had certainly got nowhere with challenge 20, lol. But, there is always a silver lining and it just so happened that the quote I had selected for Challenge 20, I could still use for Challenge 21. now to finally make my tag.
For the background I just used a couple of drops of TH distress reinkers (tumbled glass and peacock feathers) and a little Radient rain – pearl. and mixed up on my glass mat
spritzed with a little water and swooshed my tag through it
Inked though one of TH layering stencils and a little cross hatch stamping over the top
Then to finish I just gathered together some matching background scraps made a while ago, from playing with the cling film and shaving foam techniques to make the ribbon and bow (Tonic die set) to wrap up the last 2 challenges and catch back up.
There are many variations of this quote and I could not verify the original or the author, it seems to come up as anonymous.
Sorry not had time to visit anyone the last couple of weeks but I have a little spare time now so will visit as many as I can, x.
