Gothic Arch - "Asia".
Here is my example for the Inkurable Stampers 2010 Gothic Arch challenge theme - "Asia".
I have used an Asian girl stamp and Bamboo stamps from Hero Arts, and the platform she is standing on is the bottom half of a cupcake stamp from Maya road, upside down!
I used a mixture of Distress Inks, Twinling H20's, and Pearl Glimmermist for the background. The bamboo was stamped first with Versamark ink onto white paper, then embossed with clear embossing powder, which resists the coloured inks once applied.
The girl was coloured with Copic markers.
I added some copper German Scrap border at the bottom, and a Chinese coin brad at the top, with some traditional red cord hanging down.
