I have been teaching a techniques class on the 3rd Monday of each month since January. We will be working on techniques beginning with the letters "L", "M" and "N" this month. Do you know how difficult it is to find a technique (not a fold) that begins with the letter "N"? I did an online search and could find nothing! So I looked through a list of N words and came up with the word newspaper. Surely there was some craft using newspaper which could be adapted for stamping. I could find NOTHING!!! So I made up my own technique by stamping directly onto newspaper with a silhouette type stamp leaving the newsprint exposed as the background. Then I found this technique which is called "NEWSPAPER REVEAL".

It's a very easy technique and the card was kept very basic to accommodate all the stamping levels in my class.
