WWI collage

I put the finishing touches to my world war one collage this evening. I made this for a challenge on the altered art group I joined recently. I put up a picture a while back of the collage in progress. I haven't really done a huge amount to finish it off. I added a poppy and stamped a few words randomly in the background to fill out some of the gaps. To finish off I used a mini copper ink pad to overprint directly on top of the images to give them more of an aged look.

I don't think that this qualifies as a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination but I don't think it's too bad considering it's my first attempt at paper collage.
