Ring Out The Old, Bring In The New


The background was achieved by lightly sponging a manilla tag with Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap, then using a Tim Holtz Clock mask, and sponging again with Frayed Burlap. Next a French Text was stamped using Walnut Stain, and a few Tim Holtz Clocks also in Walnut Stain. The collage image was then applied, and computer generated text sponged in coordinating colours. Fibres were added to finish.
