GOTHIC ARCHES - "Bathing Beauties"
I'm pretty late this week; had a couple of crummy migraines which lasted all day and set me back some . . . anyway, I really wanted to do this theme of "Bathing Beauties" for Gothic Arches. I took some glossy cardstock and, using my Stampington Shore Cliff cube stamp, I stamped the starfish with Versamark ink and embossed them with white pearl embossing powder. I then used a makeup sponge to apply 2 Distress Inks from Ranger Industries to the paper--Antique Linen and Broken China. I added a vintage image, and edged that and the arch with Colorbox turquoise ink. I next added computer-generated words, and lastly, I glued Swarovski crystals to the starfish and applied Crystal Stickles around the edges of the arch. The photo looks better if you click on it!
