ARCHES AT GINGERSNAPS





Woo hoo my third entry as Guest Artist at Gingersnap Creations. You might wonder what the heck I created here........mmmmm its totally bananas I know....... In fact I created two as got a bit carried away........

The first one is backed with corregated card and the centrepiece is made from the paper towel technique, thats loading up lots of paper towels and soaking them, then pressing the stamp in and leaving it until it sets dry. I sloshed all sorts of products on this mache'; then on scrap
(which were left over inkings), I stamped two images then punched them out to fit in the arches.

Wow I hear you say who is that handsome fellow behind with the whizzo hat......and the handcrafted rose on his wrist. His name is Wilko and his whizzo hat is a cocktail umbrella, nothing but the best for Wilko..........lol

The second arch has been stamped twice so I could have open windows, not sure if you can see the little bat or the crown above the arch, I hope you can. This is Prince Skellboy waving to his minions.................

Oh dear I think I will have to stop drinking water........its damaging my brain.........

Drop in at Gingersnap Creations where there are some great examples and much more sensible than mine and create your own arch and enter this fab challenge.

Thanks for popping in again and supporting me. Wishing you a very happy week, Annette x
