This weeks theme at Gothic Arches
is “By The Sea”…one of my favorite things. I tried to make an arch using mostly stamping and colored images. Not something I normally do and to be honest I am not crazy about how the arch turned out. I stamped the pattern paper with a justjohanna swirl stamp using white embossing powder. Next I stamped a lighthouse, seagull, and compass using weathered wood distress ink. I hand tinted the images using photo tinting pens. Vintage sailor boys was added. Might have to make another this week as I am an avid lighthouse buff and love the sea/Great Lakes.
