Q & L Challenge - Flower

Our two words this time round on The Craft Barn's Quotes and Lyrics challenge are Flower and/or Travel.  I went for Flower to use on my altered beer mat and used some very old K & Co. bp that I've had for many years.  It's really nice to be able to use up old stash on this challenge!  The quote is by Gerard De Nerval.  I am afraid it is the same quote as one of the DT used, but I never look at those or any entrants until after I have made my piece, so no copying is involved!

Lesley that's another great beer mat alteration. I agree it's always good to find ways of using up old stash. I've lots of bp in my stash that needs using up

You are a gal after my own heart. I joined this challenge to also use up some of my never ending stash. I am still in awe of your beer mat substrates, and I love the way you decorated it this time. Great job.

It's a beautiful project and the quote is perfect for those stamps (or vice versa)!

What's great about this challenge is discovering all the new quotes & authors that I have never heard of before. It seems that Gerard had a pet lobster, honest!

I envy your simplistic style, I need to learn when to stop. Love the colour on this too
