Gothic Arches Challenge

This week we have been given free rein, so I have tried a method of shadowing, which I read about in 'Craft Stamper's March issue.
First, I dabbed over with Distress Inks, in Barn Door and Wild Honey.

My stamps are from Creative Expressions.   Going by the instructions in the magazine, I cut out the stamped image [well, I did a spare one so that this one didn't spoil] then, with a paper stump, smudged jet black Stazon round the image, which, incidently, I also, dabbed with Distress inks.

Then, stuck the 'good' image on, adding the 'family' stamp and a grunge flower.  Finally, edging the whole thing with Colour Box cats eye in silk green.

Absolutely gorgeous, Barbara. I have a craft pal coming over tomorrow and I'll try to see if we can do one of these shadow things. Great job.
