Gothic Arch Challenge - Flowers

I am way behind on some of my craft debts and I intend to get them all finished and in the post by tomorrow - so if you're someone who's waiting for something from me and you're reading this, I promise I WILL honour my commitment this week - postmen allowing!!!
Here's my Gothic Arch - I've missed this for the last two weeks through other stuff taking priority but I really wanted to have a go at it this week regardless of the subject. First I masked off the areas of the stamp I didn't want showing then stamped the rest of the image onto acetate. I like to use the kind that goes through your printer because it has a 'rough' back which is able to hold colour. I then painted it with Twinkling H20's then glued it onto the card which I aged with gesso and a toothbrush!

Thanks for looking!
