Tag Your Arch for "Gothic Arches"


Here is my Gothic Arch for this weeks challenge which is "Tag Your Arch" and has been set by the wonderfully talented Gayle Page-Robak.
I put corrugated cardboard through a cuttlebug folder. I then scuffed the embossed surface with red chalk ink and then picked out the embossing (and the debossing on the tag) with a gold pen. I cut the tag to match the shape of the arch and then added the embellishments.
I hope you like it !

Now that is clever thinking Ruby!! A beautiful arch from cardboard... may just have to go get the corrugated stuff out and bug it... you can be sure it won't be as pretty as yours though!
