Distressed Layout

An old photo out of my great aunt Ruth's album. I went to all the trouble to restore the black and white photo then crumpled it up and stained and sanded it.

I colored all of these elements except the feather. I found these numbers at a flea market and bought a ton then colored them with alcohol ink.

I cut this out with my Sizzix. I crumpled up foil tape, stuck it to chipboard, put it thru a deep texture embossing folder then cut it out with the bird cage die, colored it with alcohol ink, glued jewels and branch punches out. The bird is minus the foil tape and I colored him with peeled paint distress ink. Key is part of the set.

Sizzix dies cut the leaves with various paper, some are dyed and others are glimmer misted or shaded with distress inks.

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Safari.
I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I'd
post to let you know. The design look great though!

Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Many thanks
