Phew, just managed to get this finished with only hours to spare for the Lotstodo challenge this week - newspaper. I decided to take Hilda's advice and try the clear tape method of transferring newsprint to card. This was my first attempt and I only had narrow sellotape. However, I DID manage to transfer a small piece from a Chinese newspaper that a friend of mine had given me, so I guess it qualifies! For the background of the card I loaded my brayer with Adirondack Stained Glass ink then took off most of it on a piece of scrunched up typing paper, then rolled it over my card. Then I stamped and embossed in gold the 3 calligraphic symbols. I stamped the Japanese ladies and matted them on some lovely lilac paper. Finally I added the complimentary little adhesive "seal" between the two images. You will need to click on the newsprint to have any chance of reading it - LOL!
