bathing beauties


bathing beauties is the theme on GothicArches. I've used papers in aqua colours, stamped on them . An image from one of my vintage cd's . Is it a TuscanRose one?
Pine punch and a bit of lace .The metal shell is a button I have had for years . The text is from Lisasalteredart.

Love this arch, Ellen. I'm retro enough to remember bathing suits similar to that. We had to wear them in swim class at college. They were knit, wool I think, and clung to every curve.
