wednesday stamper- newspaper



The theme at Wednesday stamper this week is newspaper. I couldn't bring myself to actually use newspaper as it has a tendency to yellow due to the high acid content. but what I did have was a fantastic newsprint background from Inka.

I needed a couple of tags to go on wine bottles as thank you gifts, so I thought these would be perfect. I also used collage images of children in newspaper hats as I thought this went well with the theme. Inka has lots of children in newspaper hats, but these particular ones are her inchie images. I also used some patterns paper, I left a space at the bottom, in case I decide to add a message.
