"Paris Exposition" for Gothic Arches

As a stamper, I  don't have any Parisian images, but I found some wonderful old photographs of the Paris Exposition of 1900 (actually, there were several events that could be called by that name over the years). I chose two arch designs for this piece, which I colored with Distress Inks and stamped with 'Old French' writing. For wonderful arch creations with the theme of "Paris Exposition," be sure to visit the Gothic Arches blog this week!
