Stampotique Newsprint Challenge

This fun tag was created for the challenge at Stampotique
to use newsprint.
Distress inks Broken China,Wild Honey and Vintage Photo applied to tag with blending too.
Faded Jeans crackle paint randomly applied. When dried, stamped diamond pattern with Brushed Corduroy distress ink. This stamp from Stampers Anonymous 'Creative Textures'
Glued torn pieces of Kraft Newsprint tissue paper to tag.
I just had to use adorable Eric from Stampotique. He was stamped with Versafine black on white card. Paper pieced his funky shorts and scarf with paper from Tim Holtz Distressables collection.
Shirt and socks coloured with aquabrush and Broken China ink. Boots in Black Soot. Face,legs and hands Old Paper ink to give a very pale skin colour.
Vintage Photo ink around edges of tag.
Eric is attached with small foam squares.
This tag was so much fun to make....think I will make some cards using the same yummy products!
