Paint and Stencils

I love experimenting and so my card for today is a result of some of that and it fits the Freshly Made sketch
 I took plain white craft paint and with my finger, spread that over a dot stencil on white cardstock.  I left that to thoroughly dry and then colored it with some Distress Stains.  I also spritzed it with water because I was using watercolor paper and the water helps the inks to blend. The paint acted as a resist to the red color.  I just needed to take a clean cloth and wipe off the excess color. 
 That neat pointed circle is a Spellbinders die, see the added embossed line and the sentiment is from Printworks.  
Here is the Freshly Made sketch.
