Mother & Child Gothic Arch

Today's theme on gothic arches is Mother and Child, I made my arch on black canvas, I used a cracked ice effect rubber stamp and embossed in bronze for the back ground, the faces of mother and child are stamped onto cream card and raised with foam squares, the word love is cutout separately from a larger stamp, other printed words are from a dictionary, everything is edged in copper ink, I used links and chain to bind mother and child together, metal photo corners to finish it off.
