Newsprint Reveal Easter Card

I love subscribing to the Technique Junkies Newsletter produced by Pat Huntoon. In the current issue is a technique called Newsprint Reveal. If you are interested in this technique or one of the hundreds of techniques Pat and her design staff have published, click here to subscribe. Tell Pat that Sue Erickson sent you. I morphed the technique slightly. First, I used a copy of an Easter Hymn instead of a newspaper. Secondly, I wanted to use the 5th Avenue Floral stamp set by Stampin' Up! It is a line image instead of a solid image so I stamped it onto scrap cardstock and cut out the insides of the flowers to make a stencil. Then I inked through the stencil directly to my newsprint with a Versamark pad. Next I embossed the images with clear embossing powder. After brayering the paper with Always Artichoke ink and rubbing the ink off the embossed images, I over-stamped the line images with black Stazon ink. Finally I mounted the newsprint to Pink Pirouette card stock, wrapped white grosgrain ribbon around the cardfront and added the greeting. I used a sparkle pink gel pen to add dots around the flowers and on the scallops of the greeting and scalloped edge.Newsprint Easter card copy
