Gothic Arches: Turquoise
This is my entry for this week's Gothic Arches challenge on the theme of Turquoise. I created the background by crumpling up some paper, inking it in two colours and spritzing it with water. I dried it with my heat gun and then ironed it flat. I stamped over the background in white with a lace stamp, although this doesn't show up well in the photo, and stamped some flourishes around the edges in turquoise. I then stamped my main image on a separate piece of card, tore around the edges and coloured it with inks. I layered the image onto the arch on top of some shimmery mesh, coloured the lace and flowers using inks and then added the lace, fibres, butterfly and flowers.
