Sending a little something

      Newsprint
I had the idea of Sending a Little Parcel wrapped in Newsprint
so I was inspired by the Challenge to make this card.
I found a suitable news article and made a mini parcel out of the Newsprint.
I distressed it a little with Distress inks.
I sprayed the background with a Lindy's stamp gang spray.
The spray is a mid-brown and has a silver shine to it (at certain angles).
I had to make and print the sentiment from my computer 
as I didn't have one suitable that referred to the word 'Sending'.
After finishing the card I thought of a couple more recipients, 
later on in the year that I will be 'Sending' a little something too 
so made a couple more!
The darker blobs on the cards is where it looks silver, in certain light
and really does add another dimension to the card.
I Enjoyed making these fun cards.

Wow, this is such a great idea, Mac. I love the grungy background which really shows off the package. Choice & layout of your sentiment is perfect too. Thanks for playing at Just Add Ink.
