Steampunk Arch

Here is my final and favourite piece I made for the Steampunk Design Kit I received from Alpha Stamps.

I made a new fabric-paper collage background for this arch in which I used the Decor Notes Sheets by Screenprints, available from Alpha Stamps. I also included a paper napkin featuring cutlery in the mix.

It seems like ages since I last made a Gothic Arch (I've banned myself from participating on the Gothic Arch site as really I don't have the time, but I do miss it!!) so it was a real pleasure to be able to indulge myself. Also the shape seemed very appropriate for a Steampunk piece as it has a real Victorian feel to it.

For my image I used a fabric one from the Charles Babbage/Lady Lovelace collage sheet and I stitched it on. I added the watch face as well as the 3 keys, all also from Alpha Stamps. The text: Time is the Key! was done on my Dymo writer and stitched on. The arch was finished by zig-zag stitching in a green metallic thread.
