Gothic Arches Openings Challenge 29th May


I coloured up my base card using shades from the big and juicy soothing sunset pad.
Then using memento tuxedo black stamped the window from Lavinia and carefully water brushed out the ink from the glass. I coloured the window in with pro markers, and also shaded the brickwork a little more.
the edges of the arch were over stamped with an Anna Griffic flourish stamp and the sentiment is from Graphicus.
Finally I edged the bottom of the arch with a left over from a Nellie Snellon frame, and and finished off by adding two dragon flies that I changed the colours of from gold to pink.
