Words and Phrases

is the theme of IndigoBlu's most recent challenge. As they want people to use IndigoBlu stamps only I once more had to use my (momentarily only) stamp set: "Sarah's Choice", which I love the most as you can use it in so many different ways (to create texture for example).

This time I used the single words coming from the dictionary explanations for the words ART, DREAM, INSPIRE and VINTAGE to form some sentences.

As I love Shakespeare's works I was very happy to find his name with the stamped dictionary images! The rest of the work consisted in fiddling and puzzeling. My husband saw me doing this and wanted to know if I was doing some blackmail message *lol. But the "message" reads like this:

For the background of the tag I used the script stamp and some heat embossing, blending with ink afterwards and spritzing and stamping to create some depth. Then I glued the sayings onto it and embellished with a philosopy tag and ribbon. Done.

As I think every form of ART (and especially writing) is in one way or another expressed emotion I thought the sentence to be very much up my alley as I write poems or short prose from time to time (trying to do exactly that).

I also enter SSSS's "quotable" challenge  and The Artistic Stamper's "tag" challenge with this tag.

Thank you for visiting!!!
