Hello, Hello

I love this stamp set from Stampendous and I use it all of the time! To make this card I started with a brown paper bag, cut it to the size I needed. Then spritzed it with water, crumpled it up real well then opened it and lay it down without flattening it. A mushroom colored ink pad was rubbed over the top of the paper and then lightly spritz with water again but not too much. Let dry (you can speed this along with a heat gun), stamp the image with black and color in with pencils. Stamp olive paper with a background using lettuce ink. Layer all of the pieces as shown and stamp "hello" two times along the right side. Tie with ribbon and mount to a white card.
