A is for Arches Challenge: April 20166

I love arches & stamping. So for my challenge I want you to build your arch using stamps.
You can add lots more & combine your entry with other challenges.
Here's my arch

Good idea, Daniel. I will definitely start thinking about how I could build my arch. 

Great example project.

I am still thinking about what to do for an arch.  Just checking into this thread as I have not been making much lately, but still have this on my to do list.

Oh sugar, when I saw the title posted I thought this was a challenge to use arches watercolor paper...but I also knew that would be odd since most folks don't use it.

As for creating an arch I too have not yet to come up with a card design in which I would use an arch....still thinking how to combine into a design with symmetry.

Lol Jan! Glad to see that I'm getting some Ai's interested.
I'm Currently working on an arch for Heidi's symmetrical challenge.
FWIW. Rather than building a stamped arch for a specific card you might try making the arch first & then the card or whatever.   O0

I created a mini-arch in a flower garden for this challenge.  Daniel, so glad you asked for us to use multiple stamps to create an arch since it is hard to know how to use the arch until one "has made it". Mine is so narrow it feels limiting of what one can do with it. But in the end it was perfect for my garden. 

I have watched a few of the watercolor tutorials over at Art Impressions.  Since I do not own any of their stamps this was my first in using some of their suggestions.

Lots of fun...thanks Daniel!

Here is the link to my flower garden arch in the gallery.

Daniel

I love arches and can't wait to play.  I haven't played much lately ====== couldn't find space on my craft desk, but have that somewhat cleaned off and am in the process, AGAIN, of reorganizing my craft room.

But I will do this challenge and will put everything away when the project is done.

Here is my entry. I always need birthday cards so this one is a birthday card with a little humor! :smile:

Daniel, you will be proud of me. I actually did quite a bit of masking on this card! I am getting better! LOL!

Daniel, it has taken me almost all month, but I finally have an arch.  It is not at all done, but hopefully I will have it posted by tomorrow.  Sometimes this happens to me with monthly challenges that I stretch it out to take pretty much the entire time!

April and Jan, I love your arches!  Very clever, both of you.

Ann, I hope you will be able to post something soon!

Here is my card project.  I used lots of stamps and a little bit of masking to create my arch.  I don't usually do scenes, but this was a lot of fun. 

I went through all my stamping trying to find ones that would work for an arch.  None of the ones I picked out were working, and then somehow, the stamps and stencils I had out already seemed to come together to make this card.  Funny how that worked out!

I have a project for this challenge, but am having problems getting it uploaded.  My usual method was my scanner and it is growling at me.  Tried using my camera, but the finished pictures is too large.  Will go down and fight with my husband's printer.  We don't get along very well.  Then I guess I will have to go shopping.  My printer is very old and  a dear friend.  But I don't think I can even get it serviced.  Will call around.

Hoping I can get project  uploaded today.

I finally got it uploaded by using my husband's printer scanner.  It worked. 

Here it is:
