Secret message

I've got an interesting little canvas to share with you that uses printed cardboard from CCB as its base. And there's a secret message - can you find it?

I love using cardboard in mixed media - it takes paints well and has interesting texture. And printed cardboard has a little something extra with interesting designs as a backdrop. 

The sprays and embossing powders I used are from Lindy's: Brushed NickelFrozen Jack FrostPegleg Pete PurpleLandlubber GreenPop Rock Purple, and Midnight Violet.  

The tiles on the cardboard reminded me of Germany and Bavaria when I went a few years ago. It paired nicely with the Bavarian girl I used! 

So did you see the message? I used 3 acrylic stones to cover the letters A, R, and T in my stenciling!
