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.

Wow! You have captured the grunge theme beautifully. I really enjoy reading how you gifted stampers reach the final product but, if this is something to go by, it is well worth all that hard work. Standing ovation!!

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!
