Havana has a very battled past. There were many wars and revolutions that happen there. This picture is of Steve standing next to a wall that still had a canon ball embedded in it from the 1400's.
I wanted to mimic the brick pattern of the wall in my layout so I used one of Tim Holtz' texture fades that is of a distressed brick wall. I ran my paper through the Cuttlebug in this folder then sanded the raised parts and inked it all over to tone down the red a bit. I think it turned out awesome.
