Inkurable Stampers Arch

Here's my entry for Inkurable Stampers Gothic arch #7, with the theme woman/women.
I started by covering my Gothic arch shape with some torn masking tape, & I then gave it a coat of watercolour paint, adding the fabric (a piece of bias binding) by sewing it onto the arch & then cutting into it (only because I miscalculated where I was suppossed to sew, but don't tell anyone LOL)
I then got the Altered Fabric image (Paperartsy from TSQ) & stamped it onto a scrap of white cs, & I did the same with the Woman image (Cherry Pie from TSQ) & trimmed her (sounds a bit rude LOL)
The Create Your Own Reality stamp is by Catslife Press (also from TSQ) & the other 2 stamps I used are both from Darkroom Door. The lace from THIS set was stamped onto an acetate sheet, trimmed & stapled on, & the words Enjoy Life from THIS set were stamped using Brilliance ink & heat embossed using CEP.

As a finishing touch I added the glitter to the top edges, a small paper flower & some leaves from my scraps box. I'm really enjoying doing these arches, but I'm still not sure how I will end up displaying them all...remember you can join in at any time :)
