Welcome to a very fun hop!!! Using newer Gina K. images the Design Team each picked out a technique that Gina shared on Stamp TV to showcase!!!! I chose the Distressed Newsprint Technique since I hadn't ever tried that one before!!
I used one of my favorite new sets, Botanicals. I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in the Spun Sugar, Bundled Sage and Bundled Corduroy. I used Bubblegum Pink and Tan Leather Pure Luxury Cardstock. The video is super easy to follow and this card actually came together very quickly! I didn't think at first to look at the actual story I cut out of the newspaper! LOL It was a controversial political article........OOPS!!! Glad I caught it before I made the entire card! This one was boring, but at least not stressful! Next time I need to save some fun articles from the paper before hubby burns it all! I embossed the sentiment on the newsprint too so it would show up better. I stamped one of the images onto the newsprint piece to add a bit of a twist to the front panel!! I wanted the distressed newsprint to really show, so I went VERY light on any bling and just added a bit of black ribbon!!! Aren't you all impressed??!!! LOL
