Alpha Challenge 'K'

'K' is the letter over at the Craft Barn's Alpha Challenge for this fortnight.  I chose the word 'Kiss'.  I thought of it because I have a lips stamp but had to cheat and find the image of the kissing couple from the internet as I didn't have a suitable image myself and I cannot draw!



The background is inked with Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade Distress inks then spritzed with water.  I then inked though star shaped sequin waste type stuff that I have had for ages but never used. The word 'Kiss' is stamped with black Versafine using Sassafrass Lass clear stamp set Hombre and the lips are an Inkylicious stamp and red Versafine ink.  Its quite a simple page but I liked the image so much I didn't think it needed much else.  Please pop over to the Craft Barn to see the DT cool pages and the other fab entries and maybe join in yourself if you have not done so already.  I have been a very bad blogger this week and haven't  been able to visit you all yet but will be catching up very soon, I promise!!!  Thank you for visiting me - I really appreciate your visits and comments lots.  Take care.  Christine xx

Hi Chris, love your page; the background with Dylusions is brilliant. Love the orange you used. I became your follower since I love your blog and am looking for loads of inspiration being a bit of a newby. I just started my own mixed media blog, and would love it if you would pop over for a visit. Hugs Frea

Hi Chris,

Nicely done! I like the quote that you've used.

Hmm, not sure what I'll do with the old photos. We'll see.

Blogger has totally changed the look of my blog so I need to work on that....

Thanks for visiting!

Hugs,

Kay
