I had this sudden urge to make a gothic arch (haven't made one before, but love the shape)
The doors on the front are made using the double distress method from Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities. I am entering this into the Studio L3 Double distress Challenge no #23. The colours I used are Barn Door and Walnut Stain.
the background on the inside is barn door and perfect pearls gold sprayed onto baking parchment and the card smooshed around on it. It has a nice shimmery effect. I stamped and embossed the dragon in copper and painted peeled paint distress ink on the body.
I masked the dragon and stamped the windows behind, masked them and stamped another window at the top. I used watercolour pencils to colour them. Oh, the wings of the dragon are embossed with holographic powder.
The hinges I cut with my NEW cricut machine. It doesn't just cut cutesy animals but a lot more!!
These I embossed with a cuttlebug halloween folder, just as the doors. an old beady earring completes the door.
I am also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp and Show your distress inks
and also Fab and funky challenge - go with the flow.
and Paper Cutz challenge anything goes
Thanks for looking and all your lovely comments :)
