Q is for Quotes and Sayings

This week's challenge on the Alphabet challenge blog is Q is for Quotes and Sayings. Over the last couple of days I have been busy with the water colours, makes a change from Copic markers! When I was at mum's last week I watched a dvd on painting with acrylic inks and paints....whilst not watercolours I did think that I fancied getting back to splashing a bit of paint about. I even bought myself a tube of Payne's Gray. Having said that there wasn't a lot of splashing about on this card!...there is Payne's gray though!

Last week I managed to make a trip to the Craft Barn....I have been wanting to go there for ages and last week I was practically driving past the door soooo I dragged the girls in kicking and screaming....the youngest was pleading with me not to spend too much time in there, but then the eldest realised that she could get loads of stuff for her art and guess what...we ended up buying more for her than me....I did get a couple of Tim Holtz dies, some alcohol inks, a Martha Stewart round the corner punch and a crafty individuals stamp. I am pleased to say I have used everything I bought except for the stamp...(will use that later today probably) and the alcohol inks.

The stamps I used for my cards are from Paper Bag Studio and my dotty stamp of course! I really like this stamp and actually ended up making two cards, slightly different colourways, but very similar.
