Here is an example of stenciling with with Distress Stains, grey and tan, and stenciling with Distress Inks and a Tim Holtz Tool, pink hearts. The stains give a bolder more saturated look with less control on your part where the inks you have more control over the darkness and where you add the most ink. The gray and tan colored images are from a stencil by The Crafter's Workshop and the hearts are from a stencil from Heidi Swapp called ' Confetti'. I stamped heart stamps in the background using a set by Unity called 'Loolah Collection'. The words are from a great set by Paper Smooches called ' Pretty Phases'. I love the font and size of these stamps! The hearts are die cut from Spellbinders 'Scaloped Hearts' and then embossed with various embossing folders. I added inks, glitter and Crystal Accents to give a shiny look.
