The Male Room Challenge #17 is to use newsprint in a project.  I not only had a piece of 12x12 newsprint paper in my stash - I found it!
I stamped the image onto vellum using Staz On Jet Black, and the sentiment in Red.  I layered the vellum on top of the newsprint.  I originally tried to stamp directly on the paper, but the ink ran.  I like how the vellum tones down the paper, and plays up the vintage feel. 

There are still a few more days to play along with the Words 2 Scrap By August challenge - Calling All Book Lovers!


  1. This is a great card and I must say you are doing better than me. I have been looking for something all day in my scrapbooking stuff and haven't found it yet. Have a fun evening.

  2. I like it! I know I don't have any newsprint paper, so I wouldn't even bother to look!
    I'd have to go raid my neighbors recycle bag!

    Great card. The red sentiment really pops!

  3. Oh I like this, the vellum gives a lovely softness to the newsprint paper. Great vintage image too. And I like the pop of red. Thanks so much for playing along with The Male Room, and I'm sorry to be late commenting! xx

  4. Love the masculine CAS style and the vellum on the newsprint background ( a clever way to overcome the problem of the ink on the newsprint). That red really does pop and your card is great for our challenge at The Male Room. Thanks for joining in and apologies for the late comment.
