Read All About It!

It's taken me all week to get round to doing this card, but I really wanted to do this one.  The challenge at Polka Doodle was to use news paper, & as soon as I saw it, I could picture my card - so here it is:-


The stamp is a favourite of mine by Hero Arts called Dogwood, and its simply stamped on a newspaper, cut out and mounted on white card. The edges are also inked with TH Pumice.  Simple really, but I love the effect!

Gorgeous card Janice. Love what you've done. It must have been quite tricky to cut out from newspaper, but the effect is beautiful.

The Hero Dogwood stamp it's a favourite of mine as well Janice were I've not used it lately.

It looks absolutely stunning in the monochromatic colourway you've used.
