Red brick Grad card

 Hello there.  Lots of graduations in the family this year.  This one goes to my nephew who is graduating from college.  

I inked through the stencil.  Let that dry.  Cleaned the stencil.  And then applied Grit paste through the stencil.  As it dried it took on some of the distress ink color.  Then I applied Vintage photo over all of it.  

Supplies:
Distress Oxide - Fired Brick, Vintage Photo
Tim Holtz - Bricked stencil
Tim Holtz - Grit paste
Unity Stamp Co - Say It Big dies
pop dots
