Gothic Arch


Looks like I'm on a roll now with the blog challenges - just made my first Gothic Arch - the theme this week is 'Asian'.

This is using some washi papers that John brought back from Japan for me. The Japanese calligraphy is stamped using Hero Arts 'Kanji Poem' rubber stamp and the images are from a Sunday supplement ad. I cut out ages ago, knowing it would be great for a project one day.

Thanks for looking!

Stunning - great how you've got all this bold stuff on here but yet it all fits together without being overpowering.
