It may have taken time for my brain to spring into action with ideas for the current round of the Craft Barn Quotes & Lyrics Challenge but I have to say I'm quite pleased with the results. The words to be used this time are journey and/or friendship.
I decided to use a lyric containing "journey" and chose a couple of lines from Wake Me Up by Avicii . I printed the background snakes and ladders board from a web image. It was a bit too bright for my liking so I toned it down with Distress Ink and also Distress Inked the arrows before stamps some script on them. I coloured the face very lightly with watercolour pencils.

For my second postcard I used a background technique I saw Helen Chilton demonstrate at a Craft Barn Extravaganza a couple of years ago. Oil pastels were scribbled on the base card before rubbing lightly with baby oil. I then stamped the image before using embossing folders around the edge and highlighting with Treasured Gold.
