For some basics on using stencils, I tried all sorts of techniques on ATC's.
Today the fifth one.
This is how you make it:
I've used some structure paste and a stencil for the background, and sponged it with green and brown distress inks.
I stamped the sentiment with a dark ink and also heat embossed it in white.
The flower was stamped on a seperate piece of paper and cut out. I colored the structure paste with a brown watercolor pencil.
