Out of the Hat Creations 5

This is our 5th challenge from the Out of a Hat Creations challenge blog. This week it is a shape them "Arches" there are so many different styles so hopefully this will get the creative juices flowing and you will feel like joining in with us. I do hope so.
I have used a 4 by 6 ins arch and painted it in pomegranate used some crackle glaze and painted over it in storm cloud needless to say it didn't crackle as it should, still as all good crafters do they solider on and so I stamped my swirl in purple ink and the text in black. The little frame is a Nellie's oval and it is die cut out of purple paper and I threaded silk ribbon through it. I then mounted my stamped little girl (I love this stamp). My chipboard bird has been embossed in white wow and then woodware shabby white and pink sparkle. The glitter spots are sequins. The title:  well I was listening to my Elvis CD and singing along to yes you've guessed it. "Its a Wonderful Life"  This whole piece is actually more purple than my camera has shown. Do pop over to Out of a Hat Creations and join in we would love to see you there. Take a look at the other team memebers projects they are great. Chrissie, Florence and Janet. Thanks for stoppin by. Hugs Sandra X
