Here is my arch for my friend Cynthia's challenge as Guest Designer at Gothic Arches.(Click on the photo for a better view - it's not as dark as that in real life)
The challenge( in her words) was " ‘Inspired by the Rainbow’ Take only two colours from the rainbow (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet), two rubber stamps and a Word of Inspiration’ and create something wonderful in your arch."
I took as my two colours Violet and Indigo. The base card is violet distressed slightly with Distress Ink 'weathered wood' and the stamps used were from a collage set by Butterfly Kisses stamped using Versafine 'Majestic Blue'.
I tinted the rose with a Copic marker and used a Spica pen to put a little glitter on the butterfly wings. The arch was finished off with two torn pieces of iridescent violet vellum and several violet gems.
