Presenting ….. The Perrella Arch by Mandy C


Gold gel pen


v     Take a piece of white card, spray with Dylusions, dry with a heat tool.

v      Cut out an arch shape (I find doing an A4 size allows you to choose which piece of  background you would like to use for a particular project).

v      Stamp the large girl head onto some card, along with the ribbon with black        Archival. Blast with a heat tool to set. Colour with watercolours. Set to one side.

v    Firstly stamp the beaded curtain along the top of the arch.

v    Then randomly stamp (using black Archival) the numbers from the Basic Backgrounds set across the background. If you use the stamp without an acrylic block, you can get just random bits of the stamp rather than a solid stamped image. Adds to the grungy effect.

v     Heat set, especially if it’s a new Archival as they are very wet.

v      Using the Picket Fence Distress paint add some of the harlequin background stamp (adds texture).

v    Dry with your heat tool.

v     Position your girl image onto the arch, glue and then glue the ‘ribbon’ onto the bottom of her as a decorative effect.

v    Edge the numbers and the girl with white gel pen. As it’s a fairly dark background it makes the girl stand out a bit more.

v    Add gold gel pen to the beaded curtain (you could also use Stickles if you like some glitter. ;-)

v    Edge the arch with the black Archival.

v    Lastly add some Glossy Accents to the numbers on the girls hat and face.
