I used My Minds Eye, Wild Asparagus printed paper along with Bazzil solid card stock. I altered the photo to a sepia/brown & distressed all edges of the photo paper with Tim Holtz Distress- aged mahogany & walnut stain. I decided that I wanted to "pull" the colors in the printed paper, so I used both inks on all distressing in the lay out.
The Fiskars "threading water" scallop punch was used to make scalloped mat under photo. This too was distressed with both inks. My blooms were made with my Big Shot, using paper layers, inked & put together with a vintage look button. I then added some an altered gem for the center & Burgundy Stickles to highlight.
The jewels/gems that are in the layout were originally clear. I used the Ranger Cranberry alcohol ink- to color the gems. I also used the Ranger Latte & Raisin alcohol ink on the metal vintage tags, to give them a more distressed look. They are made by Sticko & were originally very copper in color. I covered raw chip photo corners the with the same background paper & placed on photo.
The timepiece is a rub on by Imaginisce. I punched 2 scallops circles, distressed them both & simply adhered timepiece. I then set the timepiece in the flourish!
This was an enjoyable layout to do! Once again I distressed almost every item used on the layout!
Thanks so much for taking a look :D
