Gesso and Brayer Challenge

Next Generation Stampers Group is having a group challenge: use gesso and use a brayer in making a piece of art and post your creation on the group site. I decided to make an ATC.
First, taped down a tree stencil over manilla card stock and sponge gesso over the stencil. (remember to wash off the stencil right away)
 Gesso dries fairly quickly.
 Then, pressed 2 colors of Distress ink on a craft sheet and used a brayer to pick up the stains and rub them over the gessoed card.
 Rubbed vintage photo Distress ink over the edges of the ATC. Added a printed music piece and a bird cage, attached with a music octagonal brad. Also added music tape over the bottom.
