Black Fairy!

Good Evening!

First I'd like to welcome my two new followers Elizabeth and Kanda. I'm so glad that you've joined me.  I think lots of my blogland friends know you both well.

Just a quick card today.  I've been playing with the Bleeding Tissue technique again.  Something I've not done for a while and believe me I have lots of the tissue to use.  I find it can be used twice so I let it dry after removing it from the card and store it away in yet another little plastic box.

I used a very old brass stencil to rub through using black Archival ink then added a couple of little gems to the centres of her flowers.

I would like to enter this card into the Delicious Doodles Challenge where the theme this time is using left overs and old stash items
