The Proof is in the... page?

Another page of the concertina book that I'm currently working on, and I had a lot of fun making this one :) This page also counts as my entry into this weeks Theme Thursday Challenge, which is "masculine"!

The word PRIORITY was stamped in off-white acrylic paint and then the tag was inked with Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey, Barn Door and Walnut Stain distress ink pads applied with an ink blending tool. The page was then crumpled and spritzed with water then ironed dry. The ornate bookplate was inked with the same colours used previously and the PROOF word was stamped in Timber Brown Staz-on. The photo is froma collection by Darkroom Door and it was folded and sanded to distress it, and Exhibit A was stamped onto it with the same Staz-on colour. The red rays on the left side were stamped with Barn Door distress ink. Finally, the edges of the page were distressed with a Tonic Studios edge distresser. Oh, and the thumb prints were intentional! :) They were "stamped" with Walnut Stain distress ink.

3 pages done, 9 more to go! :) Click on the image for a larger view.
