I dissected various textured pieces, laid them onto a greyboard arch shape and covered them with pieces of silver adhesive foil.
I "de-bossed" around the textured pieces and went over some parts with a metal wheel. Then I sanded the piece lightly and applied black acrylic paint letting it almost dry before rubbing over the arch with a paper towel to remove some of the paint. Using that age-old tool the finger I applied a little Viva Gold here and there and finished off by adding a hanging chain.
The swap I received in return was this lovely sewing-themed arch book with a matching box. Full of texture and interest. Thank you Lainey.
All the swapped arches are in the Cardmaking Paradise gallery if you would like to take a peak.
