Gothic Arches


Have joined a Gothic Arches swap on a forum and these are my first two attempts. The Mona Lisa one is my first attempt at masked stamping. Easy when you know how! Duh! The base was coloured with alcohol ink rubbed around. The other is just a stamp and coloured with pens apart from the face which is watercoloured to give a more natural effect. Both really simple but I like them. You know what they say, "simple things please simple minds". That's me! Lol!

Catherine these are stunning!!!! I want them!! ... better go and do mine then to be in with a chance!! Don't tell them how to mask - can't believe they don't know already, it is a simple idea when you realise how isn't it but the execution in this case is flawless!! Duh indeed.
