Distressed Thank You

Here is my last August post for a2z scrapbooking. I wanted to work on having the look of texture and "layers" on my card. I started by stamping the background. I then crumpled the paper and distressed the edges. I ran a brown ink pad of the paper. 

I put my stencil over the paper and dabbed my versa mark pad over the top, so the embossing powder would stick. After heating the embossing powder I used another ink to ink up the paper so the embossed image would show. Inked the distressed edges with more brown ink and adhered the panel to the base.

To finish off the card I wrapped some twine around and added the embossed sentiment circle. 
Below are some pictures I took to try and show the embossing and texture.
