For my 8x8 page today, I used the Blue Fern Studios Vintage Locks chipboard and a portion of the Blue Fern Studios Symphony Border. First I painted each piece with Tim Holtz Distress shabby shutters crackle paint. Then I inked them with Tim Holtz frayed burlap distress ink. After that, I sporadically used embossing ink so that I could emboss the chipboard with Ranger embossing tinsel. It gives it a slight, shimmery look in spots. Be sure to look at the close-up photos so see it (click on the photos to enlarge). The matting behind my photo is actually the packaging from the Prima flowers I used.
