TIOT wants a Quote!

Hi everyone - are you ready to share some wisdom? Our new theme at Try On Tuesday is 'Add A Quote'. We would like to see not just a sentiment but a quote, maybe by some one famous, maybe a well known one...we look forward to seeing what you choose.


I have chosen two quotes from songs that have been turned into stamps.
I used Distress Oxides to create the watery background, spritzing and drying as I went along.
I used Distress crayons to make part of a rainbow in the corner and blended with a water brush and the Paper Doll's clothes were coloured with Distress markers.
I have had Mr Umbrella man for a while - a precious reminder of a WOYWW crop where we shared dies.I stamped him all over with what what I believe is a Woodware stamp. 
The raindrops and the Rainbow quote are from different sets by Brigit Koopsen for Carabelle Studios. 
I grabbed a stamp that hadn't been returned to it's sheet to give the figures something to 'stand' on!

We are looking forward to see how you use your chosen quotes. The challenge runs for two weeks until the 23rd July and you will find a few rules for entry here.

Thanks for looking, Chris
