Gothic Arches "tag your arch"


Here is my contribution to this week's Gothic Arch challenge.

I used a roughly arch shaped tag. Collaged it with different papers. Overpainted with acrylic paints, stamped different images then adhered another tag.

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!
