Water color for background, a stencil & stamping. That's always a recipe for good fun.
I made the background with distress ink (crushed olive) and water color (Prussian blue) on a wet water color paper. Then some reverse stenciling with some mud brown and a tree stencil. However, the reverse stenciling can only be done once, twice tops as it is already the remnants of a color. Never mind - the cool thing about water color is that all backgrounds look totally different.
Then I stamped some background.
And found some nice words.
