ghost bride


I recentley got this ghost bride image from Aurora Wings and have been playing with her ever since.
so here she is in a some glamour shots..

In card form this is her debut .... glamorous decay

The card background is created with paper artsy bricks stamped in pumice stone and then over stamped with a crackle background in weathered wood ink. I very lightly shaded her skin and some of the flowers with water colour pencils, I then used a water pen to blend the colours. I hope the arch against the stone work gives a church feel.

I am entering the card for  the following challenges:

left of  center - fairytales- the tale of the Ghost bride

I also wanted to include these images which influenced the above images

these phots were taken at Rockingham Castle which is wonderful.
