Part of my brief was that he is a tour guide at Auckland Castle, the official residence of the Bishop of Durham, so I decided to make my own backing paper using text from their website. I printed it onto parchment style paper, then crumpled and tore it and inked it with distress ink to make it look antiquey.
The waistcoat stamp was borrowed from a friend and stamped onto paper from a DCWV Latte stack. I stamped it twice and layered it up for a bit of dimension.
The peel-off was from a charity shop buy (5 sheets of peel-offs for £1) stuck onto more of the parchment.
And 'look before you stick'? Well, having played about with the layout before sticking anything down, I realised at the last minute that I was about to draw attention to 1 particular word in the text that could cause a bit of a distraction....
Can't imagine what that might have done to an 80-year old and his pals :-s
A quick shuffle round saved the day!
