Ink and stencil background cards

Hi there. For my second project this month I decided to use a little colour! My background was first created with various distress inks added with cut and dry foam to white card. I then laid my stencil over the top and spritzed with water before laying kitchen towel over to remove the spray and some ink. I love the water colour effect this creates. I made two others - a little different - please pop over to my blog if you would like to see them!
