Gothic Arches


A new challenge this week from Gothic Arches after a brief hiatus. Glad they are back because I really enjoy making these. Their theme this week was "Guardian Angels."
I stamped flourishes (Rhonna Farrer) and this scripture verse (Stampabilities) in the background. I embossed the top flourish (Technique Tuesday) and the faux fibers (Hero Arts) on the bottom. The image is from Crafty Secrets and I gold embossed the edges of that too. Instead of brads in the center of my flowers I just added a little embossing powder to those.
