Samhain Arch


This is my entry for the latest Gothic Arches challenge. The theme was Orange & Black and a lot seem to be a take on Hallowe'en (I wonder why).
I figured that as I'm heading north for Samhain I'd kill two birds with one stone, a challenge and a thank you card rolled into one.

  2. Thanks for your comment on my blog Nigel. In answer to your question my arch was done digitally and the spider web and other black bits are all brushes. I see you're from Crewe, my parents live in Whitchurch.

  8. I love how you've created the Arch by adjoining the trees! Bravo!

    The shades of orange are perfect on this card as is the poem for Samhain.
