BSS MONDAY IDEA - DISTRESSED NEWPAPER PRINT

Hi, and welcome to the Monday Buffalo Stamps and Stuff  Idea.  I saw this technique HERE. It's Gina K on her techniques network, so I thought I would give it a go.


A close up of the distressed newspaper print.

I had this super cute image of Tilda with the newspapers and it was just perfect for this project!
I hadn't had a chance to ink her up yet, so this was the perfect card.

Kept the card simple to highlight the distressed newsprint.  I colored Tilda with Copic Markers.  I used ivory and pink card stock to make the nesties scalloped ovals with my Spellbinder dies.  Added small plain brads and a tiny bow.  It's a great technique to use on guy cards too, that's what you will see on the link to the video.

Hope you have a chance to try this technique.  Have a great Monday.

I'm posting this a bit early because House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge is having a blog hop beginning at 6 a.m. tomorrow so I didn't want this post to get lost.

Thanks for stopping by.  Until later.............
