This was for D’s birthday.
A piece of Graphic 45 ‘Race for Time’ paper that has been crumped and swiped with distress ink, then flattened again. Edges have been distressed with a distressing tool then swiped with distress ink. Mounted on white textured card which has been distressed with ink.
Sponged aged mahogony distress ink onto white cardstock. Stamped male mannequin, pocket watch, cogs and top hat from Kanban Crafts unmounted clear set Jasper Stamp 9039
in Vintage Photo ink. Stamped card edged in vintage ink, and boarder strip of penny farthings layered on it. Card layered on gold paper, and then onto the Race for Time paper.
Embellishments: Bird cage topper layered on gold paper, edged in vintage photo ink, and layered onto stamped card. Stack of dye cut shapes: medium cog, medium tattered flower, small cog, small tattered flower, edged with vintage photo ink, and topped with a copper gem.

Nice one. I love the different layering and the colours you’ve used. Some great stamps too!
thanks Tan. I have it up on my display board now (at D’s request), was very happy with it.
I am surprised at how much texture and dimension just crumpling and adding ink to the base layer of paper gives tbh, it isn’t something I have done often.
