This month at STAMPlorations, we're playing around with newsprint (that's our theme) and we also have a rad sketch. How our challenge works is that you can use either the sketch OR the theme OR both. (CHOICES! woo!) You can also use any brand of stamps that you want. (MORE choices! Woot!) And there's some great prizes, too!
I looked around my craftroom for some newsprinty paper, and my eyes landed on an brown paper packaging bag. Not newsprint, but that's what my brain wanted to play with.
Next I found a center panel that I wanted to use and pulled out my Dreamweaver glossy black embossing paste through the Botanical Lush ARTplorations stencil.
Then I used one of my favorite techniques to add funky texture - I heated it up with my embossing gun! When you heat it, it begins to bubble and crack.
And here it is - all together!
Sentiment is from the Blooms Sketches set and paper is from Graphic 45.
So play along with either the theme or the sketch.
I'm also going to send this card over to the following challenges:
Little Red Wagon - Mix It Up
Mixed Media Monthly Challenge - Texture
