Using A Stencil For Backgrounds

Oh my goodness!  I just used a stencil for the first time and how much fun is that?!
This stencil is by Stamplorations and even though I have had it a year, I have never used it, never thought I could pull off a great look.  But by using some Oxide distress inks, it was a snap and do I ever love the results.
Such an easy way to make a lovely CAS card.  Sorry if I seem to be bragging.  I'm not - just blown away at how fun and easy this was to create something beautiful.

The sentiment is also Stamploration.  I added a copper colored leaf brad just for the fun of it and I thought it needed a piece of interest.
The Oxide Distress inks I used are Twisted Citron, Wild Honey, and Picked Raspberry.  When that bright pink is combined with the yellow Wild Honey, it makes the prettiest orange.

Thanks for looking.
