 Hello everyone

I was sitting in my craft room, as per usual, and found a pile of backgrounds I had made using brushos, gelli plate designs, stencils that had been used then wet and transfer onto a piece of card.  I gave myself a strict telling off for allowing so many backgrounds to pile up

 I chose this particular background made using brushos with mica over the top.

I used the Beautiful spellbound fairy, Fip and Secret garden sign for him to stand on, reaching out to her.

Noctune Versafine clair

Elements ink charcoal through the Feather leaf stencil and around the edges

Black fineliner, sharpie and Prismacolor pencil

Red and orange Kuretake clean color pens

Mounted onto DL card which I had stencilled around the edges

Complimentary Envelope

Sad thing is I managed to get another background out of it all when spritzing the stencil LOL

Thank you for visiting me
