He Will Sustain You

I absolutely adore vintage, especially images of postcards, music, etc. and so this beautiful Kaisercraft paper is a favorite!  It's another one of those "almost too pretty to cover up" papers, and so I've kept the layout very simple.  I used a rectangle die as a mask while inking the paper, then used that as a guideline for my machine stitching, further distressing, fraying, and tearing the edges.
