Holly's challenge for us today was to use newsprint on our cards. I chose to use the gesso resist technique.
Newsprint, three layers of gesso allowed to dry between each layer, and then I stamped the Penny Black daffodil with Versamark and embossed with clear EP. Then I sponged with Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Peeled Paint distress inks. Tore to size and edged with a black pen. I mounted it at an angle onto green Bazzill, edged the Bazzill in black and also added a black frame around the image panel. I masked off the image and inner frame and stamped a text stamp in Peeled Paint around the edges. I added a little black tab and some teeny tiny brads.
Daffodil text stamp is from Flourishes Calendar Year #1
