Q is for....Craft Barn Challenge

I was hoping that the dictionary would have the land of my birth in, but no, so I opted for something that sounds vaguely Harry Potter, and reverted to trigonometry!  Q is for QUINCUNX and QUADRANGLE this Craft Barn Challenge.

I started with the same Centura Pearl square as usual, and painted it up with Stewart Gill paints. 

I used a watermark pen and some detail black embossing powder to create the quincunx, and also to highlight the edges, being the quad.  I quite like the effect where the powder stuck to the still damp paint in places.

I stamped the flowers on the offcuts, and painted them up. I added a pearl when I stuck them down on the quad.

As usual the tag has the two definitions on, with the wooden letter and a ribbon, to match all my other pages.

Hope you like!
