Gothic Arches "Grunge"


Grunge is the theme at GA today. I covered my arch in texture paste, coloured it with cranberry and expresso acrylic dabbers. The image is from Shabby Cottage Studio Altered Children digi collage sheets. I put a stripp of embossed metal along the bottom to try and make it more "grungy" added some higlights with distress stickles, (they got lost in the scan)and added a few sticker embellishments and the text. Finally the arch was edged with a Krylon copper pen.

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!
