Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #42 - Silhouette

It's time for another Mixed Media Monthly Challenge! This month our theme is Silhouette and our sponsor is the awesome stamp company Visible Image from the UK.

I used the two stamp sets and stencil below on my card.

Own Kind of Beautiful

Scripted Streets

Cosmic Skies

To create my card I started the background with Distress Crayons. I gessoed the card first, 
put the crayons on and then rubbed them in with my fingers. 
Then I put the stencil on top and sprayed water. Some water got under the stencil 
and left a very random patterned. I kept spraying with water to get it lighter. 
I really like the kind of snowy feel it has.

Here's the finished card. I stamped with Versafine Black Ink and a MISTI so I could get full coverage on the images. I mounted it to a 5 x 7 black card base and added some black pearls.
