Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - S
I think I have overimbibed of the spirit bottle for this fortnight's Craft Barn Challenge the letter of which (no surprise) is S.
So many possible S words to choose from I have gone for Suitcase. I started with this Crafty Individuals stamp - see it's a seagull standing on a stack of suitcases (stamped in Archival sepia) and it's held in place with a shiny silver star brad. My background is salty ocean DI and Impress spring green and on the right hand page I've used a stencil with silver paint. Of course in my excitement I stencilled all over my definition as well (duh!) but you can just about see it on the right hand page with the suitcase sketched around it. My stencil BTW is the lid of a gel air freshener. The quotation is from the internet (dare I say matted with saffron coloured card?) and I've added a stack of sepia-toned suitcases - I could tell you they are Samsonites but that would be silly. Enough now I'm off to have a lie down in a darkened room. Normal services (oops) will be resumed shortly (double oops).
