I was inspired by the current them challenge at STAMPlorations
Here's my card
The theme is "stamps and newsprint". I found a scrap piece of printed paper from Stampin Up. I found that the printing was too "strong" and felt that any stamping would be out-competed by the print. So, I took out some gesso (I bought it many months ago but was hesitant to give it a try, because it's messy!) and applied it with a make-up applicator to tone down the print. I let it dry and then stamped on top with this STAMPlorations stamp set. I tore the newsprint paper to give it a worn look.
The sentiment is from this STAMPlorations stamp set
Thank you STAMPlorations for the nudge to try something new (gesso). Even if it was a bit messy, I think that I may try it again.
