WT331 Crazy Collage

Today's Ways to Use it challenge over at SplitcoastStampers is to create a card with a collage. 

Not everyone knows how to do one, so here's a very rudimentary description:

1.  Normally, first I stamp 2-3 script, typed, newsprint images randomly on a diagonal.  I try to cover all the background without overlapping the script images.

2.  Next, I'll stampe 2-3 images of silhouette or sketchy type images like single flowers or butterflies, insects, etc.  Not alot, but I do like odd numbrs.  Sometimes I'll stamp these images in same color as script, sometimes I'll add another color.  You can make it as colorful as you like - the skies the limit.

Basically that's all there is to it.  I like the old-world/vintage feel it gives.

For my card, I did exactly what I said above, only this time I stamped a flower & clear embossed it before anything else.

Kraft, chocolate and mellow moss were my colors of choice for today.  I love my Copics, but I really enjoy making cards with my stamps & stamp pads, too.  I'm happy with the way this one turned out.  Hope the above hints helped you out.

Let me know what you think.
