I didn't realise how long it had been since I last posted but work's been hectic, home's been hectic, computer's been slow (not yet saying no!) and I've been tired. But that's enough of the moans, groans and excuses.
Via the the lovely work of Effie over at EfemerInk, I've discovered Gothic Arches Challenge Blog. This is a fortnightly challenge blog with different themes all of which involve Gothic arch-shaped card. Now I don't know if there is a standard size for Gothic arches and a google search provided no information, so I'm entering this piece for fun just to test the water. I'm sure if it's not eligible someone will tell me.
The current theme is 'Snap Happy', requiring either a photo or a digital image. As I've never tried this before and am unsure of the conventions, I made a simple arch from pale green pearlescent card which I ran through the Cuttlebug to emboss. After swiping the embossed card with olive green StazOn ink I attached a lovely image from Crafty Individuals, People and Places Miniatures 2 and a few flowers dotted around seemed more than enough adornment.
