The Craft Barn Song Challenge - Forever Young

 When I read that the song title for this month's Craft Barn Song Challenge was Forever Young I automatically thought of the song by Rod Stewart. However the challenge one is by Bob Dylan. The songs by Dylan and Stewart are similar and apparently the pair agreed to participate in the ownership of Stewart's song and share the royalties.

I have owned an aerosol of shaving foam for some years with the intention of making some backgrounds and I've finally done it! What great fun and my craft room smelt beautiful! I used two inks in the foam - London Blue Dylusions and Tumble Glass Distress Reinker.

Another first was to use the nostalgic Crafty Individuals stamp which I bought when it was first released as it was a reminder of my own childhood. This could well have been my brother and me - there's eight years in age difference.  I stamped the image on a piece of card and coloured with a combination of Copic markers, Distress Inks and pencils.

Shaving foam backgrounds are fun aren't they? Yours turned out beautifully for this, it looks great with the stamped image!

So many firsts for you! Well done it is a beautiful picture and thanks for joining the Craftbarn Song Challenge. Also, thanks for the Rod Stewart reference - I didn't know that. I came late to Rod Stewart with his American Songbooks!

This is great, it has a real 'Banksy' feel and the shaving foam marbled background sets it all off perfectly.
