Peace


Created for the Gothic Arch Challenge where the theme is Peace. The background was made using Distress Inks in Worn Lipstick and Walnut Stain. This was then stamped with a script in Walnut Stain. Next the collage image was applied, then the words which were computer generated and sponged with the same inks as the background. Brilliance White ink was sponged around the edges of the arch, then German scrap was coloured with alcohol ink in Cranberry, then sponged with gesso and Walnut Ink. This was added to embellish the top and corners, and finally a metal charm with the word Peace was attached to the centre of the piece.
