Another card for a Chap
This one has a distressed newsprint background (I actually used the sports page and if you zoom in you may be able to see a few scores.)
The image is one I've had for yonks and is by Personal Impressions. I think I got it second hand on eBay when I was first trying to build up my stash. The rather fabby ribbon was part of a birthday gift from the very lovely Julia of WOYWW fame. I think it looks wonderful in this setting.
To make the background, I swiped ink randomly across the paper, then I screwed it up, flattened it out again and then gently added a slightly darker shade of ink to highlight the top of the crinkles. Job done!
