GOTHIC ARCHES - "ATC Gothic Arch"



Well, I have finally switched gears after a crazy and fun past 2 weeks with 7 of my grandchildren, and I'm starting to get back in a "making art" mode. This week, the challenge over at Gothic Arches was to make an ATC Gothic Arch, using the standard dimensions for ATCs. I stamped some flourishes onto my background, (sparkly paper from K & Co.), with clear stamps, using Versamark ink, and then embossed them with gold embossing powder. Then I applied my little Artchix Studio image and added the computer-generated text to my arch. Lastly, I used a gold leafing pen on the edges, and, there you have it! You can see the detail a lot better if you click on the photo!
