2020 Stash Party #40 - A Friend Who Has Chocolate

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
This is the third card in a series of cards I am creating using Inkadinkdoo's Kid Quotes Collection "Friendly Wisdom." 
I accidentally blended away her "peace" sign. If you look hard enough, you might just be able to make them out! I rarely repeat cards. I like this one and want to send it to a couple of people.  I think I will use the sentiment with different images and backgrounds. The pearl embossing powder I used on the silhouette photographed much darker than it appears in real life.  Still, I am pleased with the effort. 

Thanks, so much for stopping by!
Stuff I Used: 
Andy Skinner Mixed Media Stencil: Hippy Chic
The Crafter's Workshop Stencils:  Mini Viva La Art, Mini Cubist, Mini Coptic Impressions
Tim Holtz Layering Stencil: Crackle

Distress Inks and Distress Oxides:
Speckled Egg (DI, O)
Worn Lipstick (O)
Vintage Photo (O)
Walnut Stain (O)
Tumbled Glass (DI)

I created my background panel by first blending together Speckled Egg Distress Ink and Speckled Egg Distress Oxide over the entire surface of the panel.  I started with one color at the top and the other at the bottom.  I blended them in toward the center making sure to leave some areas lighter than others.

I stenciled in the four background stencils using Tumbled Glass, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks.

The Hippi Chic image was embossed using WOW Pearl White EP.
