Here I used Gathered Twig and Hickory Smoke distress inks. Using Wendy's new stencil I smeared Texture Paste through it; let it air dry; then colored it with distress markers (greens, browns, oranges). The sentiment (coordinating stamp set with the stencil - Simply...Art) was stamped in Jet Black Archival Ink. The card front was layered onto kraft colored cardstock then a dark gray card.
If you don't have this stencil, I think you'd really enjoy having it in your collection.
