Printed Page ATCs 1

I've signed up at ccswaps to do an ATC swap on the theme printed pages. The directions are: Use some sort of printed page in your ATCs. Use some newspaper, magazine pages, book pages, background pages incorporating printed text, forms, whatever else takes your fancy. You could use this as a background, layers on your ATC, a main focal point or you could stamp onto it.
For my first ATC, I used some cruise line itineraries for my background. I sprayed walnut ink over the page and used a stamp to lift off some of the ink.
I randomly stamped a numbers stamp over the page.
I used the same ink to stamp a saying onto a ribbon.

I trimmed the background and edged it with the same ink and layered it on a metalic sheet of card stock. Then layered a vintage image on white paper to look like an old photo and used a white pen to add the word go. I added a keyhole embellishment to finish the ATC.
