EXTRA, EXTRA!

I am showcasing the fabulous Paperboy stamp set once again this week from Artistic Outpost (available from Our Daily Bread Designs).
Gesso has been applied randomly to the background of my card along with pieces of torn book pages.
I carried the torn page pieces to the back of the card to add further interest. I also added delicate splatters of Gathered Twigs Distress Spray Stain to the back and the front of the card.
I stamped the focal image with Black Archival Ink and added delicate shading with pencil crayons. I also added random machine stitching for further interest.
Further painty circles have been added using a toilet roll and I have added the sentiment EXTRA! EXTRA, also stamped with Archival Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
