ATC Gothic Arch



Hello every one, Thank you for all the wonderful comments yesterday I am getting stuck into using some of the yummy goodies you saw in privious post. I hope your enjoying some sun in the UK some where near you. Wednesday was glorious (got all my washing done!) and looks like today will be much of the same. I am just trying to ease my self back gently into crafting. So I have followed a challenge.






I made these flowers close to two years ago. The odd time I would do decoupage I would often make a few in advance and this has been floating around for this particular moment to help ease me into my crafting again ;0) so be gentle I am feeling very delicate as I'm trying to get back in to the zone!  ;o) I used an ATC and cut to shape of an arch. I then added some DI and stamped the back ground then added my daisy's. I have to say I really love daisy's as a flower and so when I saw this challenge over on Gothic Arches I had to have a go, and Simon Says Stamp & Show (SSSS) is all about layers and you can see there are lots of those. It's not my normal kind of style but I hope you like it none the less. Thank you for stopping by. Love Dawn xx

Items Used :- Stamps, Stamping Up. Inks, Tim Holts, Ranger. Foil decoupage.

So glad to see you back and crafting, Dawn! (And happy that you had a lovely holiday - ours is this coming weekend in US). This arch is beautiful - I just love all those layers of flowers popping up! You know it would also be perfect for the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge - which is "layers" this week! So you've done more crafting than you thought, getting the challenges done, LOL!

Hi Dawn,
I'm so glad you could see the picture of Jesus...and when you mentioned the angel, I looked and saw it too!

I didn't write about this on my blog, but my mom is very sick...The picture appeared on the card the night before I received the news...

Your card is absolutely gorgeous...how you built up those flowers is unbelievable to make them come off the page..wow!

I hope you had a chance to see my cat in the sidebar on my blog...she's so cute.

And, I couldn't tell from your post, but I didn't know why you hadn't been crafting in awhile...I hope you weren't sick...If that is the case, I sure hope you're feeling better now!
Hugs
