I used 3 Distress Spray colors, a maple leaf stencil I cut with my Silhouette & stamps from Just For Fun stamps. I came up with 3 different looks.
Bare Tree ( F3328), Grass (A012), & Sentiments (UMS7020)
Here they are all together. I mounted two on Sunflower cardstock & one on a red mat. The card bases were Red, Dk. Green, & Sunflower. The tree stamp pops differently on each card.
I love this technique! You use not only the stencil but the leaf mask. When finished spraying on the stencil I turn it over & press it down (with wet spray stain still on the stencil) & gently rub on another 5" x 3 3/4" cardstock. Voila...another background! In fact, there is enough spray to make a 3rd background.
