SS Challenge Ebony and Ivory


Here is my Challenge entry for SS this week which is Ebony and Ivory, I have took advantage of my friend Dan who has free templates on his blog every Saturday, this week its flowers. There are an assortment on there and well worth a look.
The photograph is my Father-In-Law as a boy, he is now 82 and this was taken in 1929, this is a 12by12 scrapbook page for his Album, I have matted the pic on black and the flowers were cut out and distressed with a white Dabber and doubled up with brads, placed on 3D foam. the words are Tims Chronicle stamps, sorry Hels not a lot of stamping for this challenge but I needed to get this page done as his book is now complete.
thanks for looking, hope you like xx
