Quote and Lyrics Challenge - Knowledge/Hurt

The Craft Barn challenge this time is Knowledge and/or Hurt - I chose 'Hurt' and used lyrics from the song Farewell is a Lonely Sound which was recorded by Jimmy Ruffin in 1970 - its a sad but lovely song. Ooh I must just say 'Thank You' to The Craft Barn and Mr Random thingy as my last tag came up as the winner and I won £20 to spend! How cool was that!  I have bought some Gelatos as I have so wanted to try them - will show you the results when I have had a play!

Anyway, here is my tag.


The stamp is Uptown Girl Sunny and Stylish by Stamping Bella and she is coloured with Promarkers.  The case is stamped on brown card and paper pieced and I have added Glossy Accents to her glasses.  The background is Evergreen Bough and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks and the question mark stamp is from the Clarity number set. The ribbon is dyed with the same inks. My tag is very simple but I think the stamp and words say it all. Please pop over to the Craft Barn and have a browse through the other fab entries and the brilliant DT projects.  I hope you have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend and are planning on doing something nice.  I am hoping to do some crafting and have a play with my Gelatos!

Thank you so much for taking the time to pop by my blog - its so lovely to see you!  Take care.  Christine x

Your takes on the CB challenges are always so creative, Chris ... clever use of the tag to match the girl-carrying-suitcase image ... super word labels and fabulous colours! Looking forward to seeing the gelatos in action! Anita :)

Well done on your win Chris, I look forward to seeing what you do with the Gelatos and then I can follow your lead!

Your tag is beautiful and the words really do suit that lady who does look quite sad. Hugs, Anne xx

Fabulous tag, great song lyrics and depiction. Would have chosen this myself but it was a year too late for my 60s theme. Congrats on the win.

I've never heard that song, but the gal you stamped looks like she might have come from a similar time. Beautiful tag, and sometimes simple says more than over-the-top.

A fab tag, Chris. Love the combination of the Evergreen Bough and the Lilac.
Congratulations on winning!

Hi Chris,

I love the color of her outfit! I agree, the words and her suitcase says it all. I have gelatos (one of the things I haven't used yet). Can't wait to see what you do with them! Maybe I should dig mine out too and have a play.

Hugs,
Kay

PS Congrats on winning the challenge. It's always nice to get $$ to spend on craft supplies!
