Black and White Gothic Arches

The current theme at GOTHIC ARCHES is Black and White, other than that anything goes.  

I decided on a playing card theme, after dismissing several others as being a bit twee and safe.  I don't know why but the arch shape makes me want to move away from my comfort zone of vintage style.  I'm not sure if I'll keep it up but I think it's an added dimension to the challenge for me, so I'm going with it - for the moment anyway!

I cut the black arch using the Cricut and Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge.  I used a free stamp from Craft Stamper magazine to stamp across the white playing card then tore a piece of news print from an article about animals (seemed appropriate).  I stamped the cat from the same stamp, added the die cut spades from the Indie Art cartridge and finally added the typed wording.

Looks fab, Sue. The cat silhouette stamp is really effective.

Thanks for playing along.

Interesting take on the B&W theme, I didn't think of playing cards (duh!).
