LOL, I jumped the gun & did Gothic arch #12 (fabric) for SARAH's year-long Gothic arch challenge over at INKURABLE STAMPERS...but I will get to #11 eventually : )
I started my arch by cutting out an arch shape from interfacing (the grey woolly stuff), I then stamped the tree(from this DD set) using timber brown Stazon ink onto some light-weight cream cotton, & used some vellum spray to stick it down. I then added the leaf-shaped sequins (from CRAFT QUEEN, aren't they gorgeous?) & the red ceramic beads (from my stash of findings). The quote (from THIS DD set) was stamped onto green cotton fabric with Archival ink, & stuck down using the vellum spray, & the tiny piece of blue silk was added to pick up some of the colours from the interfacing. I then stuck the whole thing down to some stiff card & added the beads (also from my stash). I've been meaning to try my hand at doing some fabric ATCs, so that will be next on my ever-growing "to do" list LOL.
With all this talk of fabric, I just remembered, is anyone (in Melbourne!) going to the Craft & Quilt Fair? I'm hoping to meet Nicole (from CRAFT QUEEN) who is one of the exhibitors, & will be catching up with my friend Sandie as well! & speaking of Sandie, she has a "Christmas in July" card challenge happenning in her blog. I signed up, & still have to make a start, but I think it's a great idea, as every year Christmas seems to come around quicker than the previous year!!! So, no rest for the wicked : ) Enjoy your day, wherever you may be in this big, beautiful world of ours, & thank you for your visit : )
