Wednesday Stamper - Gothic Arch


The challenge this week at Wednesday Stamper is a Gothic Arch. I made this background by firstly staining a glossy card with coffee. I then distressed with inks and water and added acrylic paints to the edges.


I found this quote today on a calendar and I love it and wanted to use it.

You see things and say Why? I dream things and say Why not?

George Bernard Shaw
