Way behind

Well as the title of this post says....I'm way behind with all my Gothic Arch Sunday challenges...so in my attempt to catch up, here's my Gold contribution. The stamps used are from the Printed Matter sheet by Green Pepper Press for the text background and the Icon stamp is by B Line Designs.
I had the idea of stamping the icon on gold gilding to recreate the effect of ancient religious icons & used black Stazon ink, but the impression was really poor so I ended up painting in the design in order to create the effect I was looking for....so it turned out ok in the end :)
