I've Got To Hand it to You !

Couldn't help selecting the post title !!  This card has been made as my entry into the Less Is More Challenge Blog for week 195 whose theme is 'Newsprint'.

I really wanted to keep it simple so I used a very old yellowing page from a textbook as the base and stamped with a Stampers Anonymous hand stamp (Tim Holtz) in Memento tuxedo black ink.

I then tore around the image and applied it to a white 6 x 6 inch card base with tacky glue applied on the back and spread with a foam spreader to ensure coverage.

I found a printed journal label from my stash and I cut this to size and used a set of Alphas to stamp out the words 'The Hand of Fate' which were stamped in black Versafine ink. I added a little swirl by hand. The label was applied on foam pads.

The art of palm reading is called Palmistry or Chiromancy, meaning hand prediction, hence the title.
