Henry & Isabel

Over at Soul Scrappers Liz has a challenge to find a technique you have not used before, and work on a LO with it.
So I perused the net & found a technique that I tried & I love the was using gesso on CS & then inking..
Here is my recipe -
Get CS ready & apply a line of gesso to a scrap piece of heavier CS or spalula. Place gesso'd spatula on top of your base CS & drag downwards. I added gesso to my spatula about 3 times & continued on down the page. Let dry completely. You can use a heat gun if you wish for this step.
Swipe a Distress Ink pad over your CS, concentraiting on areas without the gesso.  Wet a cloth & wipe it over your page, quickly.  Dry with a tissue or dry cloth & then leave again to completely dry.
Voila - an altered piece of CS.

I used a cream CS, & 2 Distress inks - Antique Linen (thank you Leanne) & Old Paper.
This is a photo of Pete's mum Garland parents & unfortunately we are unsure of the year...dont they look fabulous though! 
Sadly Henry died young, but Isabel married again & they all lived happily together.
