Stamps and a Stencil

I would like to welcome my new follower-JULIE -and I have another Tracy Evans inspired card.

The background was made using the stencil monoprint technique-I have used this technique a few times but didn't know it actually had a name lol.
The stencil is from Imagination Crafts and I used oxide inks,also inked round the edges using a piece of card as a guide and working outwards with the ink.I then stamped and heat embossed the rose from Honey Doo Crafts and coloured with oxide ink,texture stamp from Lisa Horton and stamped sentiment from HOTP.I made the spotlight round the flower using a circle of card and oxide ink from centre of the circle outwards to create the spotlight then doodled round the edge for definition-splatters using a Graphik line painter pen and a strip of dictionary paper to finish.
