AAA Cards Challenge #122: use a stencil

This fortnight the AAA Cards Challenge is: use a stencil and it was DT member Melissa's choice.
Our sponsor is Stamplorations.

For my card I used a Tim Holtz Stencil (TSH037) and I went for greens and teals as this stencil reminds me of a tire track, so I thought manly card.
I used Distress inks Peacock feathers and Mowed lawn and mini inkblending tools to apply the inks through the stencil. I started with Cracked pistachio, but I changed it to Mowed lawn as it's more vibrant.

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted (Brushed Greetings II) and I used Versafine onyx black ink.
A few matching enamel dots for some shine
and dimension, no rhinestones,no glitter for this one ;-)..Oh my Nuvo shimmer pens feels ignored lol.

For more information, more DT examples and or to play along the AAA Cards Challenge, see this.
