Gothic Arches

This week's challenge over at the Paper Imagery Design yahoo group ( http://groups.yahoo.com/group/paperimagerydesign/) is Gothic Arches. I usually do ATCs, but this time I decided to try a skinny (3x5"). I created the background by inking up the inside of a Cuttlebug embossing folder before inserting the paper. After running the folder through my Big Kick I had a 3x5 that was not only embossed, but had an interesting distressed green color as well. A few sprays of Olive Vine Glimmer Mist finished it off. I stamped an architectural Beeswax Stamp image next, into which a PID arch transparency fit perfectly. Some musical notes and the large crow stamp are from Quiet Fire, and the small birds on top are from A Muse Stamps. I'm not exactly sure where the quote stamp came from.
