Gothic Arch Challenge
This week the theme is to include a witch in your arch. I love this theme and have made two arches. My first arch was inspired by the moon -I just love the moon and have a vision of a witch on her broomstick gliding across the sky -no traffic jams at all. I coloured the background with various shades of blue/brown/black inkpads, cut out a circle which I coloured with orange inkpad and rubbed off after with babywipe to lighten the colour slightly. Used an Inkadinkado stamp for the witch image. This is a new set of clear stamps I have bought and there were also some flourish stamps on the sheet, one with bats incorporated and one with birds sitting on a branch and used these at the bottom of the arch, stamped them in black inkpad.
For the second arch I coloured the background in similar way. I love this Magnolia stamp. Idea for this arch is that this little witch is standing in doorway just ready to head off into the night sky. Stamped the image on white card, then coloured in aquatone pens, decoupaged her boots, hat and broomstick to make 3D. Added some glossy accents on buttons, boots, hat, pocket and broomstick.
