I say, "Finally, MARIE," because I finally finished making my arch for the Sunday Gothic Arches challenge of "Marie Antoinette" and also, I finally got on the Marie band wagon; she is such a popular subject for collage and stamp artists these days! In making my arch, I used a background paper from K & Co., added my image of Marie, and embellished the piece with embossed stamping, little crystals, and Stickles glitter, which I applied to the lace on her dress and a couple of other places with a tiny brush. Lastly, I edged the arch with a copper Dauber Duo. (Do they still make those? I have a lot of old stamping stuff!) My lighting in the house isn't very good this evening, but click on the photo to get a closer look at the details. This was fun!
