A LITTLE BIT GOTHIC

Morning everybody. All this grey weather is making me a feel a little bit gothic so I thought I'd share this little project with you today.

It's a mixture of all my favourite products from my favourite companies really. The gorgeous window stencil, brick wall stencil and acrylic arch shaped tag are from That's Crafty.  I used stamps from PaperArtsy for the cobwebs (HotPicks Halloween) and the grafitti on the walls (HotPicks again) and the die cuts are Tim Hotz for Sizzix. OBVIOUSLY I used Fresco Paints to stencil on the brick. They're perfect for acrylic surfaces. 


Alcohol inks on the back of the acrylic tag for the stained glass and then gloss gel medium (I used Golden) through the stencil. When it's dry and has gone clear you put Crackle Glaze (a staple item in my kit bag) over the top for some cracks and to add to the feel of stained glass.


 I cut the iron railings and black card and just rubbed some Pewter Treasure Gold over the top with my finger before buffing it back a bit.


 Look what happens when you put the tag by a window. Let there be LIGHT!


Have a great day all. Don't forget to swing by the PaperArtsy blog for the next round of exciting releases this evening. I can hardly wait.

  1. Wowzer! What a fabulous Gothic piece... the windows are fantastic and I just love the finish on the iron railings. The brickwork looks great on the acrylic arch too - sort of ethereal and ghostly - just right for the atmosphere!
