Original shot by Captivelight:

**wanted to achieve a sort of slightly aged/folded/scanned feel to the shot ... lol.
and of course, i just had to add my masking tape. ;P

Very cleverly recreated too, most people mend old photo's, nice to see the opposite done here!

hi, charlotte!
about the tape, all i did was take a shot of a masking tape against a white background (for easy selection if you want to paste it on to another photo, like what i did), then pasted it on the almost finished picture... clicked on "edit", then free transform... to adjust the almost see-through effect, under "layers", i chose multiply then played around a bit with the opacity percentage. hope you understood the explanation! ;)
many thanks!
