Another Gothic Arch

After my "shameless" display of my little grandson, I was just playing around with inks and paints, spritzing watercolor paper, dribbling on some Ranger spray wash and then smearing it with walnut ink, wiping it down immediately with a baby wipe. I took some orchid acrylic paint and wiped some on here and there. The image is from a copyright free website and the sprokets are Tim Holtz. This is my Little Boys Arch!

BOTH of your arches are wonderful! Love this one and the crying babies and castor oil - too funny! And, your grandson is so precious. Love how you have layered and embellished both of them!
