The pile of old letters (from the early 80s) was tied with the ribbon, with a pen, letter, red wax and stamp positioned to create a vintage scene on a calico backdrop. These other items were positioned so as to draw the eye to the letters and ribbon. Two images were taken, one softened using a Cokin diffuser, then combined in Photoshop with the ribbon brought out by erasing the softening effect and then enhancing the red colour.
