Gothic Arch - Birds

I've missed the last two Gothic Arch themes so I was determined to make one for this week's theme of "Birds" before the next theme is announced tomorrow!

Once again this is made mostly with images from Oxford Impressions although there are some others in the background, including one of my favourite calligraphy images from Alphabetique. Colouring is Adirondack Colour Washes and Moon Shadow Mists and I have used the beautiful Versafine Spanish Moss and Adirondack Butterscotch ink pads for the background stamping. I have included two scans of my arch as I am amazed how much difference the background paper I have used on the scanner makes to the look of the actual arch!! The green paper really has a dulling effect compared to the orange painted canvas.

And now back to working on my giant jigsaw pieces!

Hi Debbi
You're absolutely right about the orange BG, it really throws the arch forward, I think it may have a lot to do with the fact that the pattern on this BG is more subtle and the focus is firmly on the arch, which is beautiful.

PS have sorted the labels problem!
