Playing with a Stencil from Dies

Welcome!  I received inspiration for this card from a video by Sandy Allnock who used stencils with distress inks.  I made a stencil by die cutting Memory Box's English Rose Stem from heavy white CS.  I placed the stencil on white cardstock and inked the Rose with Distress Oxide Ink Picked Raspberry and Peeled Paint.  I placed the cut out flower (which I had leftover when I cut the stencil) over the inked area and did another layer of ink on the flowers.  This added more depth to the flowers.  After finishing the inking,  I did an additional step by dry embossing the image with the die which added some texture.  I decided to leave this as a one layer card but added some Picked Raspberry ink to the edge of the card.  Finished with the sentiment made with GKD stamp and die from Tropical Blooms.
