Garden Fairies


is the theme on Gothic Arches this week. I was so happy to see this! I decided to challenge myself to do an arch with only stamping, as I feel I may have been over using collage images lately, and I have 2 sets of fairy stamps from CTMH that I love and don't use very muc, definitely not as much as I like.

I did the b/g by stamping gesso on white card, dabbing Distress inks on for grass and sky and tried to put a tree in there with edges of the sponge with branches going over head, which came out as more of an illusion of a tree and branches. Then I stamped my fairies and repeatedly stamped a fern stamp along the bottom. Then I added a few dragonflies for company!

Hope you like it!
