Gothic Arches - text

This is my arch for the "text" theme at Gothic Arches Challenge Blog. My inspiration came from my box of vintage text scraps with the early 1900's ad on the right side that reads "Each invalid can not go to Germany to drink the Seltzer Water, but he can carry a portable Seltzer Spa with him wherever he goes, in the shape of a bottle of Tarrant's Seltzer Aperient." Well, how about that! Isn't it fun to read ads from vintage magazines? I had to add some German text to that and then created a collage with a masculine theme for my arch.
