Gothic Arches "Twilight"


Twilight is the theme at Gothic Arches. I loved the idea of this theme but when I tried to start to create my arch inspiration kind of left me. After staring at my empty arch for a while I decided to hand paint a kind of twilight scene. I am not sure about the result. I used a mix of |Ranger dye inks, distress inks and Derwent colour soft pencils. The background paper I created a while back in Photoshop elements.

  10. Astrid, your arch is so beautiful. I love the hand painted scene and I am in awe of your skills as a painter. I haven't been following the arches lately so I am glad that I didn't miss this one. Superb.

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!
