How to Pass

"Gothic Elements" is the theme over on the Gingersnap Creations blog this week. Hopefully you can see that the gothic element I went with was a gothic arch!

The solid arches and the frame borders for them were cut on the Cricut using the SCAL program, as were all of the hats and the moustache. The stamped images were coloured using shades of warm grey Promarker. The frame borders were stamped in Barn Door distress ink using one of Tim Holtz's stamps, then coloured with a yellow promarker. A piece of graphic 45 paper for the background and some TH memo pins complete the project, which is housed in a shadow frame (from Tesco, sadly they no longer have them).

BTW, I am so disgusted with the quality of this photo that I've ordered a new camera! This is probably an instance of a bad workman blaming his tools, but time will tell! :)

Pop over to the GC blog to see how the other DT members have interpreted the challenge - go on, you know you want to! :)

Only you could make gothic arches fun and funky and I love that moustache!! I would be buying new cameras all the time if that were the cause... you realise you will have to learn all the ins and outs of it now so you don't have any fuzzy images?
