      This is my entry for the Distressed Newsprint Technique.  I printed the music from a free weekly sample from Dover Publications I then distressed with Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap & Vintage Photo. Next I lightly sprayed water on the back side, waited for it to soak in so no drops were visible, then crumpled it up in a ball (1st attempt I sprayed the front & the print smeared badly!)  Smoothed it out a little, then used Frayed Jeans direct to paper for the final distressing . . . see it just hit the bumpy crumples!
         I stamped the manger from Inkadinkado's O Holy Night clear stamp set. Heat embossed with gold EP. Cut out with the Lacy Circle die from Spellbinders, then framed it on gold CS & cut out with Blossoms die from Spellbinders.
      The scripture is from Melanie Muenchingers Festive Frame .
