I Dare You Swap: Katherine's Challenge

This is what I made for Katherine for Nicks' I Dare You swap (details below). Katherine's challenge to me was to create something using hand drawn elements only. I have to admit, I struggled a bit with this one (I think it was the "only" bit that did it!)
I decided on a gothic arch as I wanted to do something bigger than an ATC but without it being TOO big (because I was scared). The lady in the middle is a pencil drawing and I've inked around her to brighten her up a bit. The flowers and vines around the edges are drawn in ink and coloured using Sharpie pens and I drew the individual petals of the large flower at the bottom and then inked them and stuck them together to make the flower. The swirls and the tiny butterfly at the bottom are also drawn in ink and coloured with Sharpie pens.
