Gothic Arch - Stitches

Good afternoon everybody.
Today I'm sharing with you a Gothic Arch that I've made for the UK Stampers challenge, the theme is Stitches.

I used a patterned paper for the background and added some gesso and acrylic paint with my finger, I kept the paint thin so that the paper pattern showed through in places. I stamped the Aall & Create scissors and sewing machine with black Archival ink. The main image was stamped with a Tim Holtz stamp onto white card, I edged it with distress ink and coloured one of the images with pencil. A few weeks ago I got my sewing machine out to practise some stitches, I added some of my stitched samples together with some buttons to the arch. I added some doodles stitches round the edge.

Thank you for visiting. xxx
