The letter Q and the colour Gold

This is the current challenge at Dragons Dream Tag It On.  Not surprisingly, Queens and Gold Crowns came to mind but, being just a little bit stubborn, I didn’t want to do the most obvious.

I perused the dictionary, and viewed the Google images but nothing really gelled.  I got the word Question stuck in my head and simply couldn’t shake it so this is what I came up with.


I started by spraying my tag, then painting with gesso.  I added some torn washi tape (which is not all that easy to tear vertically, by the way).  The words are stamped (first ever use for that alpha stamp set) and I used a gold marker to highlight the letters.

I added a rose, again highlighted with the gold marker, Gold topped pin and gold beads.

Can you finish the Quote (another Q word, you will note)?  I couldn't help but add references to arrows and outrageous fortunes, lol

See you again soon – thank you for stopping by.

  1. Like your thought process. I wonder where you got that 'not doing the obvious' streak from?

  2. Well done for not doing the obvious! Now that's one of my favourite quotes from one of my favourite plays! A quote and a question - pretty good going! Love how you used the alphabet stamp. Thank you for dreaming with the Dragons! Julie Ann xxx
