A couple of weeks back, I had assorted colours of Distress Ink left on my glass mat.  I hate just to wipe it away with a cloth, so pulled out a page from an old hymn book, the page was very thin and yellowed in parts.  I swooshed the page through the ink on the mat, picking up most of it on the page, hence the mottled coloured background.  It has sat in my stash of backgrounds since, but it was the first one I thought of when I decided to use the word stencil.

I used the Funky Fossil Designs "Fierce Stencil" to create the words.  I used low tack masking tape to hold the background and stencil in place, using a blue Distress Oxide Ink in the shade of "Chipped Sapphire" and a blending tool to colour in the words.  I inked the edge of the coloured background with the same ink.

I mounted the coloured background onto Kraft card (it's a bit like a recycled brown type of cardstock) and then inked the edges of that before I mounted it onto a dark blue background.

Using Versafine Clair "Twilight" shade of dark blue ink, I stamped the words "Bon Voyage" using a Woodware "Bon Voyage - ADS105" set, in two corners
