Newsprint Challenge - ATCs

On our challenge blog this week Rosie suggested we use newsprint. I started by covering a sheet of it with acrylic paint and stamps......then I cut it up into ATC-sized pieces and free-machined onto them.




If anyone would like to trade .... let me know! I still have more to complete..........

I am sure I have missed out on these ATC's as they are all gorgeous (and in my fave colors too).

Great technique and the results are gorgeous. Good recycling to use the newspaper!
