Gothic Arch Challenge


This week the challenge was to include a heart in your arch. I used fired brick distress inkpad to colour background paper. Blended black inkpad around the edges. Used a Paper Artsy ironwork stamp around the edges stamped in black Versafine inkpad. Added a Rubber Stampede fairy stamp and Penny Black sentiment.
