Gothic Arches - Hearts


The background fro my arch is gesso swiped over card with direct to paper distress inks and over inking top and bottom of 2 Tim Holtz masks. The image was free courtesy of Lisa Vollrath. The wire heart, which has made scanning this arch difficult as it is is 3D is one I had left over from my own wedding a couple of years ago, it is a heart bead wrapped in wire.

This is wonderful, although I don't think I would like to kiss a man with a big, bushy Mo!! Fantastic take on the challenge.
