Gothic Arch Challenge

For the last few months I have been taking part in the Gothic Arch Challenge  at UK Stampers. Gothic Arch refers to the shape it does not have to be gothicky (thank goodness)This months theme is “in stitches” I wondered what I would create, so I looked through my old wooden stamps, and came across these treasures. A lovely teddy and bunny with stitches on them. I decided as they had been packed away for such a long time, they needed a good wash so I washed them and hung them on the washing line to drip and dry!

I used glossy accents to add drips of water falling from the furry friends.They are quite difficult to see in the photo but there lots of them there.I used green flowersoft on the branches, and also added some faux stitches around the edges. 

The foam stamps are coming away from the wood, so I am undecided if I should remove them from the wood to save space or glue them back on... 

I would also like to enter my In Stiches  Gothic Arch into That’s Crafty Stitch In Time Challenge

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I hope all is going well with you xx


  1. Hi Jannet, that's such a lovely scene with the toys on the washing line, it's such a shame that we neglect our older stamps, and I'm pleased you unpacked these.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and your nice comments. Thank You.
