For this months Color This Quote challenge over at Artists in Blogland, the quote to inspire us was:
'Always be a first-rate version of yourself instead of a second-rate version of somebody else'
I used Adirondack Colour Wash inks, chalk pastels, and a stencil/mask from The Crafters Workshop. I used an old Stampers Anonymous rubber stamp as I felt the words 'Aspire, Astonish, Amaze' really fitted in to this months theme, and I summarized the quote in keeping with the simplicity of the image - I didn't want it too 'wordy'. I have long had a love affair with the colour combination orange and purple, and although this was going to be aqua and brown originally, I am quite pleased that in some totally inexplicable way it turned into orange and purple!
