I just purchased this stencil from the papercraft show. After stamping my image, I water colored around it quickly with lemonade distress ink (smeared on an acrylic block & spritzed with water) & an aqua brush. Then I found an old stipple brush, and layering my stencil over the card with magic tape, I stippled with wet mowed lawn distress ink (also swiped on an acrylic block & spritzed with water), carefully avoiding the stamped image.
When dry, I colored the image with copics, stamped the greeting, pricked and drew faux stitches around the edges & added the pearls.
I love the effect of the background, a one layer card, still a bit CAS, & a great alternative to a plain white background. And surprisingly quick. I need more stencils!!
