Peace On Earth Card

I tried a new background making technique today with stencils which was fun.  I inked the stencils with Distress Oxide Ink pads and then lightly misted the stencils.  Next I placed my white cardstock panel on top of each stencil and pressed down.  I repeated this several times with different colors of Distress Oxide inks.  I used two different stencils too.  Fun technique with endless variations possible.  :)  I wanted to use this background for the current Jingle Belles challenge of "Peace On Earth."  I found the perfect die cut sentiment in my collection of Silhouette Design store designs. I didn't have a rubber stamp image of Earth but I found a free black and white clip art one.  I'm joining the following challenges:

The weatherman tricked me into thinking today would be cooler but it is another 97 degree day here.  So I'm heading to the pool with my good book (This Tender Land by William Kent Krueger) for one more day of swimming.  I appreciate your visit and hope your day has been a peaceful one.  As always....stay crafty (use those ink pads with your stencils!)  ;)

What a standout card. Gret background to showcase the sentiment. One layer Christmas cards as the best. Thanks for sharing it with us at Double D Challenge "Feature the Sentiment".
