Sweet Poppy Stencils "Phoenix" SP1-136 Card

For the background of this card I have used a background made from mopping up Distress Inks from previous projects.  A real mish-mash of colours that I felt would likely only work with something black on it.

I decided to use the Sweet Poppy Stencil "Phoenix" (SP1-136) stencil with Versafine Clair 'Nocturne" black ink through the stencil, applied with a blending brush.  

I used the same ink to stamp the Lavinia Stamps "Dream" sentiment, which is part of the "Inspire Me" stamp set.  Finally adding a few splatters of black and white Posca Pen paint.
