KSS Ten Minute Challenge 67 - Stamping on Text

Thanks for stopping by to check out Kitchen Sink 10 Minute Card Challenge 67. This week I had fun stamping Kitchen Sink images over pages of text. I used pages from an old English literature textbook as the base for my stamping and aged the edges with a variety of Distress Inks. I really like the look and think you might, too, if you give it a try.
