Large Gothic arch

This is a large Gothic arch, measuring approx 14" x 9". The outside hardboard covered with embossed metal, coloured in places with alcohol inks. The inset is fabric that has been stamped, and coloured. The fabric is quilted, with beads and buttons sewn on. The fabric is coloured with chalk inks, and then the whole thing placed inside the metal frame. The beads at the bottom are made in a melting pot, and attached to the bottom with wire. The whole arch is backed with hardboard. If you click on the image you can see my uneven stitching.
