Created for the Gothic Arch Challenge. I started by sponging distress inks onto the card stock (Vintage Photo & Faded Jeans) using a piece of cut n dry and dragging the ink vertically and horizonally. Next I stamped the house image and added some gesso around it. I added more Distress inks over this, then stamped scratches in Vintage Photo, and speckles in black. The borders are German scrap coloured with acrylic paint in Burnt Sienna & Expresso to give a rusted appearance. I did the same with the Grungeboard letter, key and keyhole, though these were painted first with gold before adding the brown colours.
