More Inky Play

 As promised here is my card made using the gelli plate background - using some stamps which I 'found' while I was going through my boxes to find suitable stamps for this technique;.  I honestly can't recall buying this set and they must have been languishing in the bottom of this box for many years.  Anyway it was a lucky find even though I'm not particularly into fairies.  The background was done with Distress Oxide ink and Brusho dissolved in water - quite exciting to do because it is so unpredictable and each print is unique.  I cut a piece of the background to size before making the scene using a variety of stamps and masks for the ground and the moon.  I was in two minds about adding the words and dithered over this for a while - still not too sure about this but it's done now.

Fairy and Castle - Lavinia stamps purchased many years ago
Foliage - selection of stamps from various sets
Words - from a magazine freebie stamp set designed by Sheena
