On the wings of love…

Such a haunting song… it’s driven me mad this morning as I created my Gothic Arch ATC for Nancy’s challenge! I had already cut up one of my Layer Love paintings to make a twinchy-sized book/pendant yesterday, so I cut this ATC from the remains of the same painting.

I used the Gothic Plate of stamps from Home Impressions (which are sold by The Stamp Attic in the UK now – yay!) for the images and had a near disaster with the words!!

I did actually leave the watercolour paper edge on the left as it is, untrimmed, to complete the “tattered” effect! The heart at the top is from a set of mini-stamps that I bought 3 years ago, and when I stamped onto the old, very fragile, dictionary page, by sheer coincidence, I have managed to capture the word ‘arch’ at the midpoint of the heart! How cool is that???!

NOTE: Today is your last chance to put your name in the hat for the $400 worth of collage goodies at Ten Two Studios!! Hurry!!

I have washing on the line, though sporadic showers are forecast…

I am going to write to the Mobile Phone Ombudsman about Orange and their deplorable service…

But first, a cup of tea and some toast!! 🙂
