Mixed Media Monday "ornamental Christmas


The theme at MMM is "Ornamental Christmas".
My contribution is a Gothic Arch which I made for a contest over at Gothic Arches. The frame is made of Polymer Clay, stamped and coloured with mica powders. The background is collaged, coloured with dye inks and overstamped and embossed. The image I had in my collection and I cannot remember where it came from.

Astrid, I'm so glad you said how you made this. It is beautiful as an arch and how wonderful that it can be an ornament as well. Lovely work. The arch looks like it is made of stones. Love all the detail work in it.

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!
