Something Completely Different

It's time for our 2nd gothic arch challenge of the month. Ang has chosen the new theme which is fashion. Here is my arch.

I am having great fun using a sewing machine at the moment altho my stitching is still a bit wonky. I'm going to say it's meant to be like that! I have used some gorgeous Graphic 45 papers & inked the edges with Distress Ink. I have used some lace & dew drops from my craft box.

Hope everyone is keeping warm have a lovely weekend. Thanks for calling by my blog. Gez.xx

  6. Oh it's fantastic! Love the images you've used, and the colours - everything in fact! Your stitching looks great, and if it is wonky, that's far more interesting than perfect anyway.

  7. This is beautiful - love your choice of ephemera

  8. It's the law to have wonky stitching, which is a shame as mine is usually soooo straight ;) (I was going to say sew straight but that would have been silly)!
    LOve this arch, the stamps/images you used are fab. I need to raid Lucy's stash to see if I can fins anything xx
