Hello there, Horace here with week 13 of the Alpha Challenge over at The Craft Barn. Wow, halfway through already, and what fun it's been. This fortnight the chosen letter is B, and following on with our theme of words that translate the same in both languages, I chose Baggage. Ok so it's spelt ever so slightly differently in French, with only one G, but as soon as I opened the French/English dictionary the word almost leapt off the page at me.
Especially as we have this fabulous Dylusions stamp
I had tried stamping it directly onto the dictionary, but the results were disappointing, I really must re ink my Stazon pad!
I covered my little mishap with some 7 Gypsies tissue paper, which had been languishing in the stash box since Stamperama in February.
Goodness, it's bigger than I thought, where's the world gone?
Eventually I managed to regain control, and added some random ripped pieces to my page
I coloured my image, then spritzed the page with both Dylusions and Perfect pearls mists. I then decided it all looked a little brighter than I'd hoped, so I gave it all a good rub with my bearby wipe.
Hmm, it looked a little boring at this stage, missing a little je ne sais quoi....
So I had a little doodle, there, that's a bit better.
A leedle close up for you, I decided to use a suitcase for a head, as it fitted my word better than the original Dylusions heads, she looks a little weighed down by it all, doesn't she?
Ooh, and the word, highlighted and surprisingly unspoilt by the misting process!
With love from the bears
