Dark news comes on dark wings

Dearest Minions,

Greetings, in this month's craft stamper magerzine there is an article by Paula Whittaker on an aged vintage technique. I got all excited when I saw this and decided to try it. Here are the results, I used different card stock (glossy works best) and pens:



What I didn't take a photo of is my hands which are dirtier than a media mogul's conscience.

 I am entering the top photo into this week's Macarbe monday's challenge which is vile vintage, I am calling the piece "dark news comes on dark wings" in honour of the wonderful second season of A Game of Thrones.

Nice to see you giving it a go EE - I used 300 and 330gsm smooth bright white card for the article.....actually its just a piece of a card blank, nothing special!
