Valentine Gothic Arch


Our theme for the Gothic Arches challenge this week is of course Valentine. Great, as I already had the fabric/paper collaged background to use as a base. You will recognize it from earlier post. On the background I had used stamps from a variety of sources, among them Alphastamps.

I added two transparencies from Alphastamps Kisses Sheet. I did some hand stitching in gold, to outline the various heart shapes in the background and added some golden kisses in the form of cross stitches. Before I sewed on the backing watercolour paper I also added 2 red German scrap wings. On top I added the text Love with Wings which I rubbed with a pink rub-on. Two shining self-adhesive hearts (from Paperchase) formed the final touch.

I just adore love and romance so this was an arch after my own heart!
