Dry emboss with a stencil

This summer Gina K of Gina K Designs has been doing chats several nights a week.  This was a technique she showed one evening using a stencil.  The stencil (a Gina K) was embossed in my Big Shot using a rubber  embossing mat.  The next step was to use my Scor buddy and scor every 1/2 inch  Using a brown ink swipe done on the card from one side to the other and then turn and repeat from the bottom.  The new Distress Ink Speckled egg  was swiped from one side to another.  The card front was cut 4" by 5.25" .  This was mounted on a 4.25 x5.5 that was distressed with the Speckled Egg and mounted to a card base.  The sentiment was a strip cut to fit the stamped image that again was swiped with the two colors and mounted on a strip cut 1/8th inch larger and distressed.  Hope you enjoy.
