Arched ATC - Stewart Gill Stamps

Its an atc mingle over at England stampers - the theme this month is arched atc.
The Template just made me think churches, and so I went down that theme.
I loved making this today, I really lost myself in it, I must admit I love to visit churches when we are out and about. I love the old carvings, and the stone and all the artwork that you find inside, sometimes its really amazing.
So I started off making the doors,
and then you enter inside.....
The colours worked so well it looks so vibrant from the inside as you open the doors


Oh and I nearly forgot, I made the hinges by using some organza ribbon inbetween the layers so the doors opened easily.Heres the view of the back stamped onto gold card with staz on black and then rubbed some ink around the egdes and all over to darken down the gold. All the stamps used are from Stewart Gill. Which I had always admired but they where expensive, but I bagged a lot of them when a local craft shop was selling them off, and I got all they had instead of being 14.99 a set I got them for £4.
Probably my best bargain yet lol.......
I do hope you like this as much as I do, it will be hard for me to let it go.............

Ju, This arched ATC is stunning and so imaginative. I had to tell my US stamping friends about it and posted your blog link to them! I think you'll have a lot of people trying to figure out how to make their own, but none will compare to your arched ATC! Luv, Kathy
