Jolly Snowfakes

Morning.
Here is card #2 using the same stencil that I used yesterday but in a different way.
Over the next week or so, I will be posting cards using this stencil in different ways.

I began using the Snowflakes stencil from Simon Says Stamp and laid it onto my white cardstock that I had masked with an oval piece of paper.  I then rubbed Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers Distress inks over the stencil, blending the colours with my blending tool.  
Leaving the mask in place, I splattered white acrylic paint over the inked area for a snowy feel.  
I then removed the oval mask and stamped the sentiment from Rubbernecker and pierced a border around the outside edge of the oval.
Very simple design and you could use any stencil, colour or sentiment to change the look.
