recycle newspaper

I thought I would throw another card in for this theme over at The Digi Kitty where I am Guest Designer.I'm not sure if it will appear on their site,we will see.We all have lots of newspaper so I though I would use some of mine. Am I taking this recycle thing too far, do I need to get a life,HELL YES.
Come along to The Digi Kitty and play,I would love to see what you can make.I was looking for egg boxes this morning,with a little effort I think they would make great flowers.
Stick the newspaper to thin card.
I've used brown,green and gold to dab across the paper.You can use whatever colours you like.
I let it dry for a while and then stamped with my heart and butterfly stamps.
You can see the newsprint clearly on the insert at the top.

THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE! It looks like a COLLAGE--and you stamped on newspaper! BRILLIANT!!
WOW--I actually can't wait to try printing a colorized digital image on the newspaper--you are getting me into trouble--now I'll never throw anything out!
