As the beloved Gothic Arches challenge has been on hiatus since last April, and I have really missed creating in this genre, I was delighted to discover that Kris of Nostalgic Collage has generously offered to host a temporary gothic arch challenge each Sunday! You can see her beautiful arches on Sundays and join in on the challenges here.
My arch for this week was created using watercolor paper for the arch, colored with Distress Ink Pads, and stamped with a music background stamp by Recollections from Michaels. The beautiful image that I printed on my computer was provided by the Graphics Fairy . The flower and butterflies are from K & Company, as is the rhinestone brad in the center of the larger butterfly. I used Stickles, Colorbox Chalk Inks, (both of which you can find at almost any scrapbook or stamping store), a snippet from some vintage sheet music, and words cut out from an old children's book, to finish my arch.
