Vintage Girls


Created for the Gothic Arch Challenge where the theme is Girls. The background was made using the Wrinkle Free Distress technique in Faded Jeans & Frayed Burlap. This was then stamped with a text background in Faded Jeans, and then with an ABC stamp in Walnut Stain. A ruler background paper was torn, sponged with Walnut stain at added. Finally the collage image of the girls was applied, and the whole piece sponged around the edges with Walnut Stain.
