Add a Quote

The new challenge this fortnight at Try it on Tuesday is 'Add a Quote'  -  but not just a one line sentiment.

For my card I've used the lovely Dancing Woman from Rubber Dance, stamped onto tissue paper as I didn't want the line frame this time.  I coloured her dress on the reverse with Snowflake paint before adding to an Oxide inked background, that was embossed with paste through the floral stencil.  I added the music flourish using Black Archival.  The sentiment, a Tim Holtz was stamped with black and heat embossed with Clear EP.  I've also added colour to the embossed flowers using Distress inks.

The rest of the DT have used some fabulous quotes, so please pop over to the main blog where you will also find all the challenge details.

Such pretty colours on this, Avril and a great way of using a partial image, too, to stamp it on tissue paper. I have that stamp - but from the Time to Stamp days, so no idea if it's the same size or not...

One of my favourite verses, too. Lovely card.

Such a pretty ethereal look to this card and I need to live by this quote - I'm guilty of doing the exact opposite. Thank you for the chance to be part of your team this week - it's been a delight to be Guest Designer with such a talented bunch

I’d think tissue paper is fragile so not sure how you manage this, but it looks gorgeous and I like that you colored the paste too.
