Gothic Arches with Daisies

When I saw Gothic Archs when visiting Nicecrane and that way also found Gothic Arches Challenge, here is the result.  

Couple of close ups a bit lower down.

Heh, just a different "frame". Old curtain covering the wall. Sort of covering. Doesn't matter. ;)  (At least I'm not using those horrible RED, YELLOW and BLUE sheets. The only reason for that was to get the card out from the background. Ok? I know it was horrible :D  )

Look at the arch itself! How beautiful... Makes me feel sooo relaxed. OOPS! I love it, it is so calm and peaceful and gorgeous and I am speechless!

Daisy, Daisy... Daisies are B/W recolored grayish and then coloured using very extreme cheap water colouring pencils from Tesco. 

(Shhh.... Can't wait for my Prismacolors from Canada...)

The glitter is Heat It Up Gold embossing powder and looks like a muddy pond.

And of course

Daisy, Daisy give me your answer do.
I'm half crazy all for the love of you.
It won't be a stylish marriage,
I can't afford a carriage.
But you'll look sweet,
Upon the seat,
Of a bicycle made for two. 

Ok, fair enough, Donald and Daisy are not part of the card, but could be? ;)

Mixture came from:
Cardstock - Papermill 
Arch - Nicecrane
Backing paper - Nicecrane
Daisies - no idea... Image has been on my computer for years and then needed some bleaching (so to speak), and recolouring to match backing paper.
Butterfly - Anna Griffing punch
Glitter - Heat It Up Gold embossing powder
Colouring - Tesco Water color Pencils (24 for 2 quid)

  11. Annemaritta... first of all your name is just beautiful...:) and this art piece I just love. The little accent of gold that you added to the daisies just gives it that extra bit of POW !!! But the arch itself is brilliant, loving all the layers of images I see. TFS

  12. What a beautiful project. The muted colors and the gothic imagery are really breath-taking.
