Arches


I am hosting an arches swap on Lotstodo forum with the theme of family.

The woman arch is a stamped image and the flourish has been traced with gold stickles. The male image is housed in a metal frame containing various patterns and coloured with pitch black and expresso acrylic dabbers (which I finally managed to remember to pick up from Sue at Paper Paradise!!!). The word dreamer is a rub on. The child image was stamped on to the arch then masked off, and using a brayer I inked walnut stain distressed ink across the arch to create the background.
