Stencilling 3 ways on one card

I wanted to share this card I made using Tim Holtz Stencils with 3 different products.


To create the background I first stenciled on water color paper with Antique Linen Distress Paint through the Tim Holtz Stripes Stencil.  I turned the stencil 45 degrees & repeated to form a random checker/plaid pattern.


Once dry I then swiped Tumbled Glass Distress Stain and Victoria Velvet Distress Stain across the paper. The colors blended beautifully & look like a sultry sunset.  The painted stripes resist the other distress products & appear to come to the foreground.

 Frayed Burlap Distress Ink was applied with a blending tool through the Measured Stencil.
The Stars were then randomly stenciled using Wendy Vecchi's Embossing Paste. 
I love the way they are semi translucent, so left them uncolored with the background peeking through in places.

I then stamped Tim's Bird Stamp in Black Archival Ink.   Printed & cut out the sentiment.
This piece was applied with other torn paper scraps to a 5 1/2 " Cream card base.


Cheers for now.
