Acetate and Utee.

Hi Blogmasters thought you might like this technique.
I made this card for my father's birthday using an old photograph which I scanned and then printed onto acetate.
(Sorry about the reflection but it was difficult to avoid).
I used an antique style paper behind the acetate for added interest.
The brown background paper was stamped with a Crafty Individuals clock stamp, embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder and then rubbed over with Tea dye distress ink.

 
The frame was created using corrugated card and the Tim Holtz Vintage Cabinet Card Die.
The frame was then covered with Utee and stamped with the Crafty Individual Clock stamp.
Before mounting I coloured a metal frame with alcohol ink and finished this with a stamped tag.
The metal embellishments and ribbon completed the card.
I finished the inside of the card by stamping onto a separate paper and cutting the shape using the cabinet card die and attaching this to the inside of the card.

Hope you will let me know if you like this.

Best wishes Angela x
