It's time for another STAMPOTIQUE DESIGNERS CHALLENGE which I think ends tomorrow so I've only just made it. The challenge is to use a template and I have used a Gothic Arch template which was a freebee from BELINDA SCHNEIDER. I drew round the template on Grey board cut it out, gessoed it and then coloured with a mixture of Barn Door, Fired Brick and Aged Mahogany DIs. Using a Stampotique and Archival black I stamped the faces to represent the people. I then stamped the "Queen" image on to white card with black Archival, rubbed Barn Door over it and used Glossy Accents on her wings, she is fixed on to the background using 3D foam pads. The wording I printed on the PC brushed over with Barn Door and edged with a black pen. To finish I edged the arch with gold Krylon pen and glued a German Scrap gold crown on to her head.


  1. Love the arch the colours are fabulous they make the queen stand out so proudly!!! Chanelle xx

  2. you do make the most original and interesting items, I love seeing what is coming next. I love the stamp and how you have highlighted her wings. Also love the gold pen highlights, where did you get that? K x

  6. There are several ways for you to get quick cash for your assets. One of them is to sell your scrap precious metal. You may have necklaces, bracelets, rings, or just any other accessories that have not been worn for over ten years.
