Whispers in the Wind

Morning and the card I have to post today was inspired by the brilliant Tracy Evans.
The background was made by dipping a stencil into spritzed distress ink then put onto the cardstock and was roiginally going to be two smaller cards but ddecided to go DL.
I then put a die-cut circle down and brushed distress ink outwards to make the circle shadow,craft mag freebie splat and script stamps-teasel stamp from Bee Crafty,stencil and stamped sentiment from Artisan Designs,ripped pieces of book page and fibres from stash.Really pleased with this one!
