These two arches are for a swap I'm in. The last one using a vintage image and distresssing it, inking and stamping other images, and adding embellishments.
The one with the angel on, doesn't show up very well. I have sprayed the card with shimmer paint, and there is foil in the arch top. I have put gold around the wings, and the edge of the arch. The whole card is quite shimmery, the scanner has dulled it off quite a lot.
The arch with the miserable looking baby on is me. I had obviously been taken to the photographers under duress, and I wasn't going to smile how ever many toys he gave me to play with.
The stamped image I thought looked a bit like me, so put that on as well.
You will be pleased to know, I have cheered up a bit since then.
These two arches show some of my ancestors. The last one is of three generations my great grandmother, my Nan with a family friend, and then my mum, with one of my first cousins. Mum can't remember who the little girl is. My great grandmother looks a bit of an old harridan to me.
The other one is of my great grandparents. Great grandad looks like a typical grandad figure, the sort who would slip you a sweet when your mum wasn't looking.
