New Layout to Share- lots of distressing

My friend Karen bought me this beautiful paper, I believe it was SEI. My back ground was the light pink and white patterned paper. I used walnut ink to spitz over a heidi swap stencil that I got at We B Scrappin for a dollar in their clearance section. It was a 12 x12 strip about 4inches long that has the polka dots cut out of it. I layed it crooked on my page more to one side
I used a tattered angels tag and inked it up with Victorian velvet distress ink and vintage photo distress ink, also added a little chalk ink in the mix to soften it up a bit. I cut out one of the flowers with the butter fly from the patterned paper and attached it to my tag.

here I used a tonic punch I bought and did it all the way down the paper so I could weave my fabric thru it. This is just a piece of white satin fabric that I bought in the clearance bin for I think $1.20, I just ripped a piece off, frayed the edged folded it and weaved it thru my punched slots

I took a piece of card stock, used a cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss this piece, then ripped the edge of it and sanded the embossed dots. The card stock is the coordination's card stock where the inner core is a complimentary color to the darker on the outside not white. Then I ripped a piece of the patterned paper (the brown is what is on the other side of my base patterned paper). I distressed the edges with my distress ink then layered this piece on top of the embossed piece and then put my photo on top.
