Eclectic Silhouette

Welcome, today I have a mixed media card, using my A4 Stamp Eclectic Silhouette #113 from AALLandCreate.
I began by applying Gesso through a circular aperture, applying the Gesso with a piece of Cut 'n' Dry Foam and then dried the layer with my Heat Tool. I then applied Distress Oxide Vintage Photo to my background, the Gesso resists the ink and gives me a resist.
I also added a touch more stencilling using Autour de Mwa's stencil #39 Lotza Dotz, applying Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink directly over the stencil and then spritzing with water.
I added stamping to the background using VersaFine Clair Acorn ink and then added layers to give definition to my design. I stamped the silhouette a second time with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink and then blended the ink with a waterbrush around the edges of the silhouette to give a touch of shading.
I also added a tea bag to my design for a touch more texture along with two die cut circles for added interest.
I love the layers and dimension on this card. To complete, I added a couple of pieces of media tape randomly to my background.
