Gothic Arches "Silhouette"


Silhouette is the theme at Gothic Arches. Really liked the idea of that, it gave me the chance to use a little silhouette stamp I got not that long ago. Mine has a wintery Christmas theme (as most of my things do at the moment. Background was done with Adirondack dye inks and a brayer.

  10. Astrid, your technique of brayering the background is super. It looks so wintry, yet the sunset adds just the touch of color. How very beautiful. I like your new stamp, too.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
