Gather in Love

I wanted to get a chance to play with this wonderful Skeleton Leaf stencil and this great sentiment from Impression Obsession. They just seemed to go together well.  
I love this time of year when we are reminded about all we need to be thankful for.

I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock and positioned the leaf over the top securing it with some Pixie Spray.  Pixie Spray is a repositionable spray for use with stencils. 
Next, I took a baby wipe and squeezed on a small amount of Peeled Paint Distress Re-inkers onto it.  ** Wear rubber gloves to prevent your hands from being all inky**
I took the inked baby wipe and pressed it onto my stencil.  Still using the same wipe, I squeezed on some Peacock Feathers DI and repeated the process.  I find this technique gives the inked background a more subtle look, more hand painted.  I added a bit of Salty Ocean and let the piece dry.
When it was dry, I splattered the front with some more ink, then stamped the sentiment using my Misti.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Here is the stencil I used:
