A Double Challenge


This is for two challenges and I got the idea to do the two together from Frankie; the first is for Gothic Arches and the second is 'Art Creations Friday'.

The background is a result of my first try out of alcohol inks -- I used Adirondack in 'Currant', 'Wild Plum', 'Cranberry' and Mixatives 'Gold'. The image of the girl which came from Art Creations Friday was turned a little pinker with the help of PSP. The little gold arch tag was embellished with a picture of her secret love and a tiny pink heart and the whole was finished off with a line of gold round the edges and 3 little gold corners. Unfortunately the photo doesn't show how shiny and sparkly it really is.
