Wonder and Think

This week I am using the more masculine image from the Think and Wonder plate for my weekly DT piece for Artistic Outpost.
The backdrop has been coloured with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and flicked with water to give an aged worn feel along with distressed and torn edges.
I have stamped the focal image onto white card with Black Archival Ink and then coloured with Weathered Wood and Brushed Corduroy Distress Inks, again distressing the edges for that worn feel. I have also added a watch face, coloured with ginger Alcohol Ink. I have matted the focal image onto a further piece of card coloured with Distress Inks and stamped with the background stamp from the Paperboy plate.A tag has also been nestled behind the layers coloured with Weathered Wood Distress Ink and stamped with the same background stamp.
I added the sentiment 'Wonder and think' to the top of the card along with a 'V' embellishment to echo the 'V' in the VAN HOUTEN'S in the focal image.
To complete I also added alphabet ribbon and a brass key for added interest and dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

That's magical, Tracy - the vintage glow is gorgeous, and the metal additions are perfect. I now want to go and stamp that stamp right now! Thank you for the inspiration.
