Media Frenzy



I am sure we have all had 'regret' purchases... it is particularly annoying when you think that about a craft item you have bought, but hold on to it long enough... and you might just discover a new use for it. That was the case with the stamps used on this card, my definitions stamps are really useful, and the ransom notes were just what I needed! The picture was from a photograph album, you know those samples pictures that they put in. I used chalks to colour in parts of the photo. The big BLACK smudge was not delibrate, but some how adds character and gives it that 'newsprint' look I think....?

Enjoying the Daring Card Makers challenge once again!

Esther, this is great - it's so unusual in every way, and everything here works really well together. The ransom stamps look fab - I bet now you've used them once you'll think of lots of used for them.

Lovely card, Esther. It looks so sweet yet so punky at the same time. As a non-stamper, it might even make me dig out my ransom-type alphabet stamps again
