Newsprint Reveal Bird

I bought an old textbook on soil the other day and wanted to try the Technique Junkie Newsprint Reveal technique on that instead of newspaper. The pages were yellowed a bit and gave it a warmer tone and didn't bleed thru as much, which I'm happier with.

STAMPS: I Brake For Stamps - bird, nest and phrase from a Time To Stamp sheet, and flower stems from the Stampinback line

INKS: Staz-On Jet Black, Versamark, Marvy Black

SUPPLIES: punches - Martha Stewart flowers and leaves, unknown sunburst and 2 Grrrls crown, brayer, white gel pen, black embroidery floss, paper needle, glue

NOTES: didn't want to move Chevy from his perch near the Ott lights so I propped my card in front of his furry little self LOL that's the orange you're seeing behind it

Chevy makes a good 'propper-upper' for your card! I, too, like the color of the 'newsprint' in this card. There are a lot of things going on here....all of them good.
