Winter Sports - Let's Stand on One Leg!!

An arch is a 1st for me... This is my entry for the challenge on the Gothic Arches board, here. As you know, I like to try a different angle on things!! The image is from Joanna Sheen's Oriental Dreams CD, and the background is created by spraying with Glimmer Mists and overprinting with alcohol inks - seems this has become a fav technique at the moment!! The snow is Fluffy stuff and the arch is finished off with a Sakura silver Pentouch line around the edge. I really enjoyed it, and will definitely try more of these arch challenges.

You've done it! It's lovely and I must say that is one of my favourite images from the CD. It's so versatile I've even used it for Christmas cards.

This is one of the most beautiful gothic arches/paper crafts I have ever seen. The depth is there to the point where I could step on in and walk around inside this piece. Bravo. I can't believe it is your first arch.
