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.
