Stencils and Masks for Craft Stamper

Hello, and thanks for visiting, today I'm sharing my make as a Guest Designer at Craft Stamper's Take It Make It challenge inspirational post, as I was thrilled to have won their June challenge with this card.  The current challenge  is Stencils and Masks.
I decided to stay in my comfort zone of Vintage and used this lovely lady from Oxford Impressions 'April in Paris'.
I began with a piece of Gessoed textured card and gave it a few coats of Distress Paints and then used Crackle paste through the doily stencil. I highlighted the cracks with Vintage Photo spray and inks and there's also some random background stamping if you look closely.  The base was another piece of textured card, painted with Antique Linen and then some random doily stenciling with Vintage Photo.
Thanks to the DT for picking my card and for inviting me to play along with them.
