CC2-21 Distressing and stains

Well over at Linda’s Studio L3, she is doing the Distressing stains (Tim Holtz) technique challenge for this week. I used a few stains including picket fences. I inked around the edges with Distressing vintage photo. I stamped the eiffel tower (TH) stamp with Onyx black ink. I wanted to add the (TH) script stamp, so I used gathered twigs ink so it would be darker than the vintage photo ink. I added some fibres to the top and a 7 Gypsies gear and it was done!
