GOTHIC ARCH-"Marie Antoinette"

I didn't get this completed in time for Kris' Gothic Arch theme last week, but wanted to post it, anyway. I used watercolor paper for my arch; I soaked it first in water, and then colored it with Distress Inks. Then I put it through my Big Shot die-cut machine, using one of Tim Holtz' Alterations Texture Fades. The image of Marie and the cake is from the Graphics Fairy. The beautiful Iris flower and the bee are from K & Company. Stickles and Stampendous sparkle dots, and a Recollections rhinestone brad complete the arch!

Your arch is Gorgeous Jann!! I love how you create your backgrounds with the water and distress inks, they are always So Beautiful!! The embossing gives so much texture, I really like that too! :)
Love you, Carol Anne
