Recently posted a Gothic Arch I made, so have been working on this one to hopefully revive them ! This one is done in a 'Home' theme !
The base was cut from card and was covered in a piece of green/yellow metallic fantasy paper. I then took a piece of scrap card and stamped a swirl stamp (PaperArtsy) a few times in Versafine onyx black to form what look liked a swirly tree. This was coloured with shabby shutters Distress ink and cut'n'dry foam before being trimmed out and stuck in place.
The house and roof was cut from chipboard which was painted in pale yellow acrylic paint and allowed to dry. Once dry the roof was stamped with a little music stamp (Crafty Individuals) in terracotta Memento dye ink. The house body was then stamped with Brilliance pearlescent ivy ink and another Crafty Individuals stamp. The edges of the roof and house body were then edged with shabby shutters and scattered straw Distress ink using cut'n'dry foam. Some chestnut brown chalk ink was applied around the edges of the roof and house body.
The windows of the house were backed with some heart printed vellum and the door with some printed paper which were just glued on. The bottom of the house was edged with a scrap of home coloured paper cut with decorative scissors.
The heart was again made from chipboard which was inked with Versamark ink and heat embossed with butterscotch ranger embossing powder. This was edged in chestnut brown chalk ink and attached to a short piece of florists wire with pliers and a twist. The words were stamped onto white card in Versafine onyx black coloured with scattered straw Distress ink and trimmed out.
The printed ribbon (PaperArtsy) was trimmed to fit and applied along the bottom with double sided tape. The house parts were attached with sticky dots, with the wire from the heart trapped behind the house. The words were stuck in place and a few dabs of Stickles glitter glue applied as shown whilst the whole arch was edged in chestnut brown chalk ink to finish.
Roll on that revival !
