Distress Ink Multi-Level Die Inlay!

For the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge we were asked to use more than one die or punch. I used two, the Simon Says Stamp Chevron Background die (I don't think they sell it anymore) and the Lil' Inker Hello die.

I used Distress ink and smooshing to create the main panel on Distress water color paper. I then used the chevron background die to cut the water color panel and some teal card stock.
I put the the teal card stock panel on my card base and then attached the water color panel on top. I then adhered the negative pieces in their places without the teal card stock under them so they are recessed from the rest of the image. If you try this with a die with a lot of similar shapes be sure to do a better job than I did keeping them straight. I spent way too much time trying to get them back where they went!
I cut the "hello" from the same teal card stock, added a bit of shimmer with my Wink of Stella pen and then adhered it on top. 
Thanks for taking a look!
