Gothic Arch part 4

Arch 4 is color blocking and stamping.  Really like this technique, too!

I have a personal problem ripping books apart so to ease my pain I've started buying books in foreign language.  The pages in the background are Swedish, I think.

I used distress inks for the color blocks-they came out lighter than I expected-not sure but I think it's the gesso.  Used watercolor paint for the bird breast and inside of the heart.  Had to use Stickles on the crowns!  The butterfly is a rub-on and the stars are confetti.

Moving right along to number 5!
