I so enjoyed creating this Gothic Arch.
I built up at least 6 layers of gold embossing powder by heating and melting until I achieved a thickness I was happy with and whilst still hot I carefully stamped my chosen image into the hot gold...my choice being one of Crafty Individuals ...It gave off so much texture.... click picture to enlarge
Once the gold was cold I them used gesso and inks to finish the background.
I them inked the stamp with an ocean breeze colour, cut out the image, stained it with black tea and then adhered it in place.
I am pleased with the results...:))
Thought I would share this housework banner with youI must say Housework has been stopped in my house for sometime now, since I began using my living room to craft in.... it's a creative mess...but I have promised myself to clean up more often.... lol.... if i cleaned once a week it would be more often..lol.
I hope that i managed to get round all our followers and those which i also follow either over the Christmas or New Year period...If I have left anyone out I must apologise as I didnt mean to.
I wish for everyone a FABULOUS 2009.
