Anyway today between coughing fits I managed to finish my page.
I have used various ~Tim Holtz stamps and others on the background which was firstly given a wash of greens and blues, this was a bit bright I felt so I dry brushed some white gesso over and blasted with heat gun.
I really like how the background stamping onto water colour paper makes for a distressed look faded in places darker in others. I stamped in Adirondack Denim, Distress inks vintage photo, chipped sapphire, broken china, brushed corduroy.
Stamps were Tim Holtz Fairytale Frenzy and selection from Visual Artistry collections. This AJ page will also fit in well with the Country View Challenge - make your own backgrounds. Lastly the "Quote" is one of my favourites in Tim's collection which I stamped in denim onto a piece of card I had in my stash which already had a wash on it, I stamped in denim and used vintage photo and chipped sapphire to distress the panel after I had distressed edges with tool. Butterflies were found in my bits and bobs box and same inks were used to age them.
