Papertake Weekly & Stamp with Sarah Kay

Monochrome Madness is this weeks Papertake weekly challenge, whilst
Stamp with Sarah Kay is do anything you like providing you use a Stampavie image. Since I got this stamp by Sarah Kay I've fancied doing something with a 'vintage' look with it as the image itself has a vintage feel. The BP is core-dinations on top of which I used some newpaper paper which I have had forever. I used the snowflake folder on white and mounted the image onto this.

I originally tried stamping the image onto a brown paper bag, but sadly this was too absorbent and soaked up the ink so I used a piece of beigy brown card and highlighted it with a white pastel pencil and a white gel pen. (Note to self - must try stamping on brown kraft paper ). I used the Martha Stuart punch to edge the image and Tim Holtz Tea dye distress ink around most of the edges.The sentiment is Aud designs and brads and ribbon from stash.

I agree with Shell and the way you have used the white pastel is just wow!
Make mental note - must try stamping on brown and highlighting - it looks gorgeous.
