Its the first of the 2014 challenge over at The Craft Barn and this year it is the Quote and Lyrics Challenge. You have to include the words 'Smile' or 'Up' this time. I went for 'Up' and chose 'Up On The Roof' recorded by the Drifters in 1962 and written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King. I have decided to make tags for this challenge.
Now this could be a dull evening scene with birds flying home or a night scene with bats flying around - its up to your imagination! I made a night scene and then stamped the birds forgetting they don't fly at night! Silly me! The background is Dusty Concord, Stormy Sky and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks with the moon in squeezed Lemonade. The roof is hand drawn (something I usually avoid as I am hopeless but didn't have a stamp) and coloured in with Promarkers. The cats are Silhouette Cats by Little Claire and were stamped with Black Versafine and embossed with clear powder heating from behind so they are smooth. The birds/bats (tee hee) are by Clarity Stamp. The whole thing is sprayed with Glimmer Mist for a delicate sparkle. Please pop over to The Craft Barn to see the fab samples and all the brilliant entries. Thank you for the visit, I am so grateful and I love reading your comments. Take care. Christine xx
