Tando Arches Blog Hop

Welcome to Tando's blog hop and the focus is Arches.  You should have arrived from Carol - (who is also the start of the hop) and end up on the Tando blog.

I started my project by making a cardboard background for the arch and I painted them all in white gesso.  I then spritzed them a little with some walnut glimmer mist and I used some texture paint and a brick mask on the cardboard backing too.  Once that was all dry I used the floral arrangement from my Kaisercraft Christmas stamps to go around the frame in gold ink, I then went around the edge with tea dye distress ink too.  For the base I used my American Crafts chaps grid stamp and some grey ink - using one of the art journalling techniques where you don't mount your acrylic stamp on the block but curve it and make an impression.  I then started with the flowers and metal embellishments.  The lamp is prima, and I added another metal embellishment which I coated in paint and a little glitter.  The sentiment is from some Kaisercraft rub ons, the finishing touches were some glitter and liquid pearl dots.

So next on your hop is Kaz
