Q&L Challenge: FLOWER & TRAVEL

Over at the fabulous Craft Barn the Q&L challenge is to use the words Flower and Travel.

The iCard has been cut from a mop up piece of card,used Pan Pastels on the background. Stamped some of the images from Get Stamping Travel Set on both sides, the back of the card all being second generation images.

Love Darcy Wilkinson’s Stamps and used her Heart Border from set EDY07, coloured with Sakura Glaze Pens. Went over the whole of the front with Metallic Pan Pastel Pewter and sealed.

P1060406

The Lyrics are from a band called Destroyer and their song called Blue Flower, Blue Flame.

“I gave you a flower because foxes travel light and a penny for your thoughts was never enough – your head gets filled with that stuff”.

Hope you enjoy the song from the link above.

Thank you for all the lovely comments you are leaving, they are always much appreciated.

  17. Love this... the flowers growing up the wire fence gives a great feel of nature in an urban environment, and the delicate stamping on the back is great. And you'd fit right in with my Our Creative Corner challenge this month - With A Song In Your Heart... even down to the song link in the post! Do come and play along!

  18. I enlarged the images and I am so glad I did. The texture is just gorgeous. This project also makes me think how art and beauty are all around us, if we just look. We can often see such unexpectedly beautiful things when we are travelling like wild flowers growing between barbed wire, which is what this piece calls to mind, I thought of the Our Creative Corner Challenge when I saw this too!
