ABAA - Newspaper

This is my entry for ABAA this week which is to use a piece of newspaper.

I have included 2 pieces, the first is a Thank you card, using some black card i embossed it with a cuttlebug embossing folder , putting the word thanks all over it, and added it to the front of a white card. I then added a flower cut from newsprint and a couple of butterflys. When making the butterflys i used 2 for each, gluing one on top of the other an bending the wings of the top one up over to add depth.

The second piece is from a post dated back to 15th January 2009.
My uncle Tom used to draw The Broons and Oor Wullie years ago before he died so back in January when making things with newsprint I made this Broons House to remind me of him. If you visit the original post you can read the full story.

Thanks for visiting my blog

I like the idea of using the newsprint flower technique on top of embossed black paper. It looks great.
