Q is for

Time for another page in my altered dictionary and this time "Q" is the choice at The Craft Barn Challenge.    Not many words to choose from so I went with the one that jumped off the page at me Quill.   I apologise for the photo it is such a dark rainy day here today I will edit photo tomorrow if it is a better day!

Photo edited 

The definition "the hollow stem of a feather"
 I used this feather stamp from Sheena Douglass falling feathers set. Also added  corners and splodge stamp from her ageing beautifully set. Ink Archival black and I crossed out some words with a fine line pen, I wanted the page to be messy like mistakes on a page written in ink......I achieved messy alright not sure if I got the look I was after though......lol,
Edges of pages were inked with black soot distress ink.

Thanks for all the lovely comments
'till next time


Stamps Sheena Douglass A Little Bit Sketchy Range, falling feathers and aging beautifully
Inks Archival Jet Black, Black Soot DI;
