Newsprint Pansy

Today I tried a little different technique.  It's called newsprint stamping.  The results give your card a vintage look.  I used an old paperback book that was falling apart.  I stamped the Flower of the Month Pansy onto the page.  The pages are thin like newsprint.  You could also use your local newspaper for some interesting backgrounds. (Crossword puzzel anyone?)   I colored my pansies with Derwent Inktense Watercolor pencils.

When gluing your newsprint down use Beacon 3 in 1 glue.  It dries clear.  Other glues might soak through the newsprint and ruin your stamping.  Hope you give this a try. Be sure to post it in our customer gallery.  
Happy Crafting!
