Double distressed gothic arch “Planes, trains & automobiles”

Here’s another Gothic Arch in the Inkurable Stampers series: planes, trains and automobiles. If I want to finish all 24 themes by the end of the year, I shall have to create an average of 3 arches per week, so I’ll have to cut back on ATCs and create a few arches instead.

For the background of this arch I used the Double Distress technique explained on page 40 of Tim Holtz’s A Compendium of Curiosities and so this will also be my entry for this fortnight’s challenge @ Studio L3.

As this gothic arch also uses both dry embossing and heat embossing, I’d like to enter it to the Lots to Do “Embossing” challenge. Moreover, I used a tag, which fits the current “Tag along” challenge @ My time to craft.

Stamps used

  • Car, sentiment: Tim Holtz
  • Plane, luggage, ship:  Clear Choice
  • Map: A Capella
