Gothic Arches - Inspired by the Rainbow

For today's Gothic Arches challenge we were to use two colors of the rainbow, two stamps, and an inspirational word. I have been dying to use this background for ages and lept at the chance to use it. I made it a month or so ago using the Two Toned Crunch technique from the Dec/Jan Technique Junkie newsletter. I paired it with stamps from I Brake for Stamps/Time to Stamp. I also used another Technique Junkie tech that will be in the upcoming newsletter. It's called Drywall Stitching and it is such a cool technique!!

If you aren't already a TJ subscriber - you need to check it out! Each issue is packed with ideas and artwork that will truly inspire you. I have dropped all of my stamping mag subscriptions, but I would be lost without Technique Junkies!
