It's week 20 already and we are rapidly heading towards the end of the challenge and in turn Christmas and the close of 2014. Yikes!! This time we were challenged to use the words "gift" or "destiny" (or both).
I just so happened to have a stamp with a quote containing the word "gift", so no searching the internet required. The background is embossed and I inked the embossing folder before putting it through the Big Shot. The stamp behind my quote has been in my stash for some years and I think I have only used it once before. Although I used the same ink on it as on the embossed background they look completely different colours used in those ways.

For my second postcard I used lyrics from "My Destiny" sung by Lionel Ritchie. The tissue tape along the top and bottom was made some time ago at a workshop by stamping onto micropore tape with archival ink. This was a bit of a stash buster all together as the background paper and the picture have been languishing far too long waiting for their fifteen minutes of fame.
