Funky Fossil Designs "Free Spirit" on a gel plate background

I'm still in "stash busting" mode and found a gel plate background I'd made months ago, so decided to create something with it today.

If I remember correctly, I used Pan Pastels on the circular gel plate with the Funky Fossil "In the groove" stencil, which made this wonderful print.  I liked it so much, I had been putting off using it, but hey the deed is done now!

I paired the background with the horse head in the Funky Fossil Designs "Free Spirit Stamp Set", stamping the image in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink then coating it with Wow! clear embossing powder and heat setting.

I coloured the image with a green Van Goch pastel pencil.  Mounting it onto black card and then on to a card blank.  Finally adding a few black gems to the surface.
