On a roll.....!

Wow - it's been a busy week for posting! I just received my Ransom Note ATC swaps in the mail and luckily, I got one of my own back. Usually I make a few extra to trade and one to keep for myself. This is a one-off set but at least I scanned them before mailing.
I was supposed to use individual letters but I decided to go with the words because the phrases were so long. These are the lyrics from Evanescence's "Bring Me to Life" and I thought the 'Classic Captions" stamp set from Stampin' Up would work perfectly together! The background papers are ones I created using the Salt technique where you dab inks on the cardstock so it is very wet and then you sprinkle salt over it, heat set it to dry. You get a wonderful mottled effect - it is different if you use table salt vs. coarse salt like sea salt. I used watercolor pencils to color in the images but did not blend them.
