I started by stamping out the image and coloring it with my Spectrum Noir markers. Then I got out my Ranger Distress ink pads in Vintage Photo and Antique Linen and gently distressed the colored image working in a circular motion.
I punched out the large circle with my new We R Memory Keepers Lucky 8 punch. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!! The smaller circle is one of the doilies that my friend, Karla just sent me in that package of happy mail I told you about!! Thank you again Karla!!
I inked the edges of all my paper, the doily and the punched circle. I layered it all adding a piece of lace that I snagged at a thrift shop for pennies and a wooden scroll from my stash. I wrapped a bit of bakers twine around a piece of my paper before adhering it. I printed out my photo in black and white. It seemed a bit stark so I took the Ranger Distress ink in Vintage Photo (apropos right?! lol) and inked it up a bit.
