Gothic Arches "Garden Sprite


A whole week has passed already and I have not blogged once so I thought I have to take part in at least one challenge this week, - so once again, Gothic Arches is the one...
The background of my arch was created with a spellbinder stencil which I embossed with the help of my cuttlebug on dark cardstock. The rest was collaged and then some detail added with hand drawing.

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!
