The image was colored with Distress Re-Inkers and then the edges were sponged with Antique Linen. When working with a cornucopia image, I always think of the song “Over the river and through the woods.” If you are at least my age, you’ve got to remember it too! It was one of those standards we always sung in grade school. I found a copy of the words on the internet, printed them out, and gave them a little distressing with the Wrinkle Free Distress Technique. It was then tucked in behind the image. I made some frames using Spellbinders™ Oval and Square Nesties, and tucked them around the image as well. I always forget to tell you this, but after I sew the background paper to another panel, I go back and sponge the edges with distress ink. It tones down the white thread I use so that it appears more aged.
