I started by printing the vintage roses on a gloss photo paper, then cut the sides, and inked the card here and there to get the old look. But instead of a dauber I used a natural sponge instead. That gave a totally different effect. Beautiful. Then I added a couple of layers (6 to be precise!) of Mod Podge Antique Matte to get a bit of that yellowish tint. Took a kraft paper, did some clear heat embossing for texture and painted the page with chalky paint, on it stencilling with Super Heavy Gloss Gel and coloured it green with chalk inks. Ripped the page in pieces and took some paint off from here and there by placing a tape on top and pulling it off quickly. And then I just put the layers together. From the other papers I used Tim Holtz idea-ology Crowded Attic and 7 Dots Studio Lost and Found.
Here's the print inked before I added the Mod Podge.
