Gothic Arch challenge for this week


Dawn, the Chatty Stamper, is this week's host for the Gothic Arches challenge. What a terrific challenge this was! I couldn't wait to start working on it. I knew I wanted to use this "clock lady" as the focal image of my arch, but I didn't anticipate that one thing would lead to another, and I would end up with a Halloween Theme, also. LOL! I colored her with bright colors (COPICs) and since I had this awesome glittery lime green paper, I knew it would be a perfect back-drop for her. The bottom looked plain, and that's when the idea of adding the pumpkins popped in my head. And why would she be standing amongs pumpkins, you ask? Well, she's trick-or-treating, of course! This is when I had to improvise and create a jack-o-lantern bucket for her. I tell ya....my brain is wired in such a weird way. I don't know why or how I come up with the strange things that I do. Thanks for stopping by!
