For AJJ 'Elegance and Grunge' theme today I have an elegant and grungy piece using a lovely photo of one of my husbands ancestors.
The print I did was in black and white in the middle some photo paper and then I added colour using Prima water soluble oil pastels and pan pastels and went around some of image with black Stabilo all pencil. Then I stamped around photo using Kaisercraft ‘Windsor’ and ‘Film edges’ stamps. Next I added a couple of digital additions: a quote and flowers - the quote font: is called ‘Allura’ and the flowers I made from one of my own photos of Osteospurnums and a threshold effect applied. And lastly a thin digital blue border was added.

For my tag I used some distress oxides on background, a foam stamp by La Blanche, a couple of 3d stickers and a silk flower I re-coloured and added a gem too and at the bottom is a piece of antique lace.
thanks for stopping by
hope you have a great day
