Three Muses - Quote


The challenge for this week at The Three Muses is Quote or Quip. On this tag I used one of my favourite quotes. Creating anything with paper, ink and stamps really clears my mind and helps me to escape from work after a busy working day.

The numbers in the upper left corner of this tag represent the busy life during working hours. By stamping them in brown they seem to be "washed away" by the other elements.

Het thema van deze week bij The Three Muses is Quote or Quip. Voor deze tag heb ik een van mijn favoriete quote stempels gebruikt. Bezig zijn met papier, inkt en stempels maakt mijn hoofd leeg en zorgt ervoor dat ik tot rust kom na een drukke werkdag. Het werkt echt!

De getallen linksboven op deze tag staan voor de drukte tijdens het werk. Door ze in bruin te stempelen lijken ze weggevaagd te worden door de andere elementen op de tag.

Wow! This is a very beautiful tag. I love everything about it - the quote which is a great one and the beautiful use of inks and stamps. The effect you have achieved with tinting is superb. It is a wonderful hobby to have if it makes you feel better after a hard day's work!!
