Art is the imagination at play..(gothic arch crowns)



I havent made a gothic arch for a while so for a break from trying to sort out the house and a million and one things..I made this little olde vintage arch. The arch has a distressed embossed background with various elements added which happened to be on my creative space. I really like the energising colour of this sari ribbon and my fav little girl stamp from Scrollswork. Back to cook the dinner etc etc etc...have a good night everyone... and be sure to check out the other gothic arch crown entries...
