Wed Stamper/Joan of Arc/Fleur-de-Lis



The image of Joan of Arc (Jehanne La Pucelle) is taken from a painting by an unknown artist of the Franco-Flemish school, I added a few touches of acrylic (gold) and darkened the lines with black.
Joan of Arc, also known as Jeanne d'Arc,[1] (c.1412 – 30 May 1431)is a national heroine of France and is a saint of the Roman Catholic Church.

Fleur-de-lis appears on the flag and also in the corner.
Stamps used: Saint (Stampington), Illuminata (inkadinado), Medieval plate (Stampsmith)

Thank you, girls.
Linda, I cannot take credit for the banner, lol. It comes from a book on scrapbooking, I only added signature Jehanne to it.

I adore this, the historical image is gorgeous. My school was called St Joan of Arc, and seeing a fleur-de-lis just reminds me of my school blazer!
