Gothic Arch


There must be some karmic rule against having so much FUN! (lol) First I found Wednesday Stamper challenges. THEN I found Nancy's Gothic Arch challenge. So this one is created for THREE purposes, Wednesday Stamper (combining stitching and stamping), Nancy's Gothic Arch with a school theme, and for my little grandsons, who will be going back to school next week. The gothic arch is actually a photo of a real gothic arch in Ireland. A friend visited there last month and shared all her photos with me. I knew what I would eventually do with this one! (lol) The grumpy looking little boys are from some nether region on the 'net. The grass stamp is Outlines, the ladybug is Sugarloaf. Henry's little hat is All Night Media, coloured with Prismacolour pencils and OMS. He has a pom-pom on top of his hat, not sure if that shows up. I didn't put a hat on Henry's little brother Mervin, because I thought his hat was so cute anyway. Tim Holtz vintage inks used to age things.

THANK YOU for these wonderful challenges, I'm wasting my whole day in my crafting hovel, what a great way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon. Aaaaahhhh...
