The Lovely Gossmere

Hello Fellow Blog Artists!

Know I find inspiration in your work and I hope you find some in mine. "The Lovely Gossmere" and the arch she inhabits is about a young woman who just wants to play in her castle. Onlookers look on. Are they supportive? Are they envious? Are they truly her friends? We may never know...

This little arch is for THE GOTHIC ARCH challenge which is an open theme, CRAZY 4 CHALLENGES which asks that we use at least 2 ribbons in our project C4C44, and OH, ALICE which requires that we use a red, white and blue color scheme

STAMPS: Gossmere (digi) by
3 in a round and heart tie by Stampotique
background text by Clear Distressing Stamps,
Be Yourself by Inkadinkado's 10 clear stamp piece Friendship

TEMPLATE: "Fancy Gothic Arch #1 by Roni Johnson Ink Stains which can be downloaded for free at the Gothic Arch Challenge blog

OTHER: colored in copics/diamond stickles/8 brads/4 small flowers/white hand stitching/2 ribbons on bottom/broken china distress ink/ pearlescent sky blue brilliance pigment ink
