Funky Fossil Designs "African Woman" Card

This morning, I was in the mood for some stencil play, so pulled out some of my older Funky Fossil stencils to make this card.

I found a gel plate background in my file that I'd made a while back using Distress Oxide inks on a gel plate, so thought that would be a nice bright background to use.

I placed the Funky Fossil "African Woman" stencil over the top of the background and applied Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink through the stencil.

Next I used the Funky Fossil "Abstract Pattern Stencil" with Versafine Clair "Summertime" orange ink.

I felt it needed something else, so I pulled out one of my most used stencils, the Funky Fossil "Micro Dots Stencil" and used "Vibrant Fuchsia" Archival ink through the stencil to provide an extra dimension.

I mounted it on black card to pull the eye in to the image.
