Distressed Photoframe



This is my distressed photo and frame that I have made for the distressed swap. I used crackle paint to cover the frame - peeled paint. After it had dried and crackled, I rubber over it with the walnut distressed ink pad - I love the effect. For the picture, I cut up the Eiffel Tower, the Paris and the Postmark, again from Sir Tim's papers. The black and white photo in the middle I distressed using my cut n dry nibs to hi-lite some of the flowers and the red rose the young man is holding and used antique linen to distress and discolour the whole image. Finally I used caramel alcohol inks around the edges of glass
