the theme for this month is
this is an 8 x 8 wall hanging, the background is printed and stuck down onto card. then i cut an arch and using inks and gilding waxes gave it a metallic lustre, the wonderful Hearts Entwined Verse is stamped inside the arch, if you look close you can see i also used the Bronte Script randomly over the background.
along the bottom i have used the Tall Grass stamp in both black and white, and have gone all round the edge with the bottom of the Grunge flourish Stamp
Edgar & Clara are both coloured with Spectrum Noir markers in turquoise and black
Next i decorated the arch with some flourishes and tiny white flowers, and to finish and give the steam punk feel i but lots of tiny cogs and dots and added all over in a random pattern.
oh almost forgot , not sure if you can see it too clear but i also splattered white all over the background.
