Embossing Anyone...?

Here is my entry for this week's embossing theme over at Simon Says Stamp and Show blog:


I've once again used a Gothic arch as my base, covering it with foil and using 2 different embossing folders, I then swiped a variety of StaZon ink pads onto the raised and the de-bossed areas, and added the sentiment and the girl image, both heat-embossed, and both from TH (the sentiment was stamped with a web image from the Halloween set of TH stamps)  The images were coloured using a mixture of wc pencils and inks, cut out and stuck on with foam tape for added dimention.   I've kept the arch fairly simple as I really like the texture and colour of the embossing.
Thanks for your visit  : )

So cool! Love the metallic embossed background. The girl image looks fab (I have it!)I must 'dust' it off!
I have been thinking about this challenge...an idea is brewing...slowly.
