Look No Colouring

I had the idea for this card in my head for a while, I wanted to try a bit of inking and distressing but now its finished I'm glad I made it, don't worry if you think the image is blurry I inked the stencil with fine linen then moved it slightly and inked with gathered twigs and it causes the background to be hazy, not sure if it works but it is different.

Whilst on a recent Florida visit I noticed that in the slightly local scrapbook store (Violettes) the samples had the main image and a smaller image in the corner, I liked this look so tried to recreate it here. Next time though I think I need a smaller second image.

Image: "inspired by the front porch - Fall" MFT
Paper: "lattice" stencil from Heidi Swapp
Card:"early expresso" Stampin up
Inks: "fine linen" papertrey ink, "gathered twigs" distress ink and "rich cocoa" memento
