Wed Stamper/The door to marital bliss



Did you know that the church ceremony in the middle ages took place outside the church door before entering the church for a nuptial mass?

I was thinking that if you look at the old engravings long enough,the colour starts to sip into the black and white images, and they become alive. That's why I didn't colour the stamped images completely. I wanted them to look like the shapes becoming alive and colourful.

I am submitting a real quickie this time, as it's either now or never, this last week was so busy with the school break and the usual havoc at home, which looks like a place after the pillage by the Mongol Tartars, and in fact created by two men, an older and a younger ones.
