Calendar Challenge Week 9

The theme of the Craft Barn Challenge this week is "Old paper" and red lines with die-cuts optional. As I need to keep my pages fairly flat I have incorporated only one die cut as a frame for the girl image.

The background was made by stamping second and third generation of a script stamp in Versafine sepia ink directly on the page, the first generation having been stamped on a separate piece of a spiral paper pad. Using cut  & dry foam I then applied Antique Linen Distress ink over all of the stamped script and once dry drew the lines with red pen. Finally,  to complete the (vintage) "school girl desk" look, I splodged some black ink (yes on purpose!).

Thanks for coming by,
