Simon Says - Use At Least One Stencil

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

and the theme for this week is...
USE AT LEAST ONE STENCIL
I made a card using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Lovestruck Colorize Thinlits, Damask and Quilted 3D Texture Fade Embossing Folders, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Mini Layering Stencils from Set 6 to add interest to the background and Simon Says Love Shadow die for the sentiment.

I began by lightly dragging the Black Soot Distress Oxide ink pad over the debossed side of Tim Holtz/Sizzix Quilted 3D Texture Fade, spritzed lightly with water, placed a 4" x 5.1/4" panel of Distress Watercolor card in the folder and embossed using my Sizzix Foldaway.
I applied Black Soot Distress Ink through the Valentine Mini Layering Stencil from Set 6 using a mini round blending tool.
I applied Distress Texture Paste Matte through the Hearts Mini Layering Stencil from the same set, sprinkled with Fired Brick and Candied Apple Distress Embossing Glazes and heat set once the paste had dried.
I die cut Tim Holtz/Sizzix Lovestruck Thinlits from different shades of Idea-ology Classic KraftStock and Sizzix Cardstock, inked the debossed side of the Damask 3D Texture Fade with the Black Soot Distress Oxide ink pad and embossed the top layer heart.
I inked the edges of all the heart die-cuts with Ground Espresso Distress ink using a mini round blending tool, drybrushed the edges with White Gesso and assembled. I also drybrushed the arrow and the top layer heart with White Gesso to highlight the amazing detail from the Damask 3D Texture Fade.
I fixed the heart to the panel using foam adhesive, die-cut the love word twice from Distress Watercolor card using Simon Says Love Shadow die, layered to create dimension and fixed to the heart using Distress Collage Medium.

I matted the panel on to Simon Says Black cardstock trimmed to 5" x 6.1/4" and fixed to a white card blank.
