Tile Stencil Kraft Card

This is my first card using Kraft card stock. I use non-white card bases all the time, but I've never tried using Kraft before. In Taiwan Kraft color isn't very mainstream and we don't even have many stores that sell smooth, heavy-weight Kraft card stock. I got mine recently on Amazon and it's called Environmental Neenah Desert Storm. At first I'm not so fond of the 'environmental' look because of all the little speckles on the card. But now I'm okay with it, it does make it more natural and 'handmade' I guess. 

It's a pretty simple card. I first stenciled a coat of Hero Arts Unicorn White pigment ink, zap it with my heat gun, then applied yellow, pink, and blue pigment ink. I off-setted the stencil a little bit, but not enough, when I was applying the colored inks so only a teeny bit of white ink showed. Lesson learned. Well, crafting is all about experimenting!
