Arches with Gingersnap Creations

The new challenge over at Gingersnap Creations today is "Arches."  Since our overall themes this month are spooky and gothic, I decided to keep the party going with a bit of a spooky gothic arch triptych.  The lovely lady is from Vintage Stamper Freebees, and the stamped images are from Tim Holtz and Oxford Impressions.  My background is a bunch of Glimmer Mists, sprayed onto my craft mat and smooshed onto white cardstock, then distressed with Distress Inks.  A few trims, some bling, and some vintage text words finish it off.

I hope you'll have time to join us over at Gingersnap Creations.  Any kind of arch goes.... so let your creativity fly!

Hi Jean
This is a beautiful creation and I also wanted to say that I love the project that you have in 'Craft Stamper', this month. I love the way you have used the crepe paper. You have also chosen some of my favourite colours...I adore the pale sage green with pink.

Have a great week and thank you so much for the lovely comments you have made on my blog....they are very much appreciated.

This is wonderful. I just love the colors and the spooky feel it has. I have a hardest time creating anything spooky. But I love to see other peoples creation..
