Self-Portrait ATC

 
 
Happy New Year!  I am involved in a Gentlemen's ATC group.  For January it was decided that we should do self-portraits.  For my piece I took a profile photograph and manipulated the color to black and white in PhotoShop.  I then printed both the color version and black and white version onto tissue paper.  After tooling the metal tape from a hardware store I glued the color portrait to the metal first and then I glued the black and white version over that.  I added some distress ink to the portrait.  Finally I added the heart and hand which were trinkets I had found at garage sales.  Each ATC is different as the trinkets vary.
