I started off by taking a #8 manilla tag. I took a chevron stencil from Heidi Swap and used Brushed Pewter Distress Paint. I then took Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers distress ink and blended it over top. The distress paint will resist the distress inks. I spritzed it with water so the distress inks will run together. The beauty of distress paint is once it is dry it no longer reacts with water, so the stencilling didn't run. To finish it off I stamped the quote from a Tim Holtz set and added a few embellishments.
