Walk With Me

 Good Morning.
 Simple card today as I play with a stencil from Memory Box and my Distress inks.

I began by placing my stencil onto my card front and got out my Distress inks.
I stenciled the center area first using Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers, being sure to blend the colours together.  Then I used some Dusty Concord for the top area and some Vintage Photo for the earth tone at the bottom of my card.
  I removed the stencil, then using a paint brush and some grey ink, I painted some shadows on the trees to add some extra interest.
The sentiment was inked with black Memento ink and stamped using my MISTI.

 Adding my card to these challenges:

 Thanks again for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps- IO/ stencil- Memory Box/ ink- Distress, Memento/ applicator tool/ MISTI/ paint brush
