Gothic Arches "Peace"


The theme at Gothic Arches is "Peace".
I tried to create a peaceful mood with my collaged arch. The image is from an old postcard I bought in a fleemarket. Sadly it has not scanned well....

Since we cannot see the difference of the post card vs the scanned image. The scanned image looks like it came out perfect for this soft peaceful creation.

Hi Astrid I think your arch is very beautiful!

I have been so frustrated about putting a direct link in my posts too so I went to Wikapedia today and muddled through and it works!!!
Hard to see it here so I'll send it through your email too...maybe it will be clearer!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
