Stamping, sponging and stenciling.........

Still not well and after spending most of the afternoon sleeping I tried out a card using stamps, a stencil and some sponging.  STAMPloration is having a challenge that is Stamping and Stenciling and one of the design team's card (Sari) inspired me

I started by using small stamps from a Hero Arts set and distress inks and stamped them randomly through the stencil (Hero Arts Birds and Leaves) then used the distress inks with sponge daubers to colour the stencil.    Finished with an embossed sentiment from the HA set on the vellum. 

Entering this into the challenge at STAMPloration

Thanks for stopping by.
