Opportunity knocks ...

Gothic arch Thank you Chris Rollins! I have just been waiting for an opportunity to try out my new Cherry Pie Art stamps! To my delight I find that Chris has set the Gothic Arch challenge this week and picked a theme of Black, White with a hint of red. Whoopee!

I can say whoopee now ... but there was n't much whooping going on while I was cutting them out and mounting them I can tell you. Still 'tis done now and I shall never have to go there again! [With this set anyway!!!]

Lots of white acrylic paint and black embossing powder on this one! Does anyone know why out of all embossing powders the black one has a mind of it's own and spits occasionally???... I thought I read somewhere that it was something to do with the pigment ... but I am not so sure now!

Hello Linda,
this is one fun arch and reminds me of Whitby UK where they hold Goth weekends twice a year and the story of Bram Stoker and Dracula visiting there.
and of course the shape reminds me of the giant whale bone in whitby.
thanks for this great arch,
chriss x
