Travels of the past

Had a lovely crafting time yesterday doing some distressing 
that i really enjoyed, things just seemed to flow and i came up with this 

The black images i printed onto vellum and scrunched and inked in brown coloured in
the biker with promarkers, torn edges and inked around both images.
made a tag and inked edges and added string.
sandpapered the corners of the backing paper,  stamped tickets and inked
edges also ink disstressed flower and added a brad.
matted to brown card and applied to 8x8 backing paper that looks like a frame.
and sponged brown ink around frame,to finish off i punched corners and sanded.
I might use this for a cover of a photo album of our holidays past.
Loved making this

Here is the prize for one lucky winner 
Wow what a prize
so please take a look and have a go.
