Distress Inks, paint and Crafters Workshop stencils

Hi All

I first stenciled the mini doily in antique linen distress paint.  This creates a fantastic resist, if you haven't  used this technique before it dries completely flat, unlike most resists which tend to be raised.  I then inked the background with scattered straw and wild honey inks. Dried them off with a heat gun.  Then stenciled the mini butterfly meadow over the top with weathered wood.  I was trying to achieve a sun rising in the background sort of effect - think it might have just worked.  What do you think?
