Green Goddess

Good morning everyone on this breezy Sunday. We actually have sunshine at the moment so I'll be off out for a walk soon to make the most of it before the rain comes again.
I'm finally back doing some challenges after a busy week and have my first creation here to show you. My arch has been made for the Gingersnap Creations Chestnut Theme GC69 Ancient Ages, today being the last day (as usual for me at the moment!) and I really enjoyed making this as I've gone back to my preferred vintage style here.
I stamped the woman in the arch (I think this is by Lost Coast Designs) on 2 shades of my own background paper in buff and grey wash effect and cut the central arch out of the grey one to mount over the top of the buff one. I added a little colour with Copic pens.
I then stamped some leaves with green inks on pale green card and added more colour with green and brown Distress inks. I also did a little embossing with Ranger Tarnished Gold whilst the ink was still wet.
I  stamped the arch background with some of the images from the Chapel Road Art Stamps Italy set with toffee ink and added colour with Distress inks.
I'll be back with more creations tomorrow.
Have a good Sunday!

Oh my Fliss, these creations of yours leave me speechless. Nice card seems inadequate.

Think I might be needing to call on your for help and advise shortly if I remember rightly the system you use (my latest post will give you a clue. I'm dreading the conversion actually.
