Bleeding Art Tissue Technique and a Donna Downey Stencil

Hello  ... just a very quick post tonight, to share this 10 x 8 Canvas with you .
Once again its the ''Bleeding Art Tissue'' technique.  See my You Tube Video Here. 

I think you know by now, how much I enjoy using this technique. I've used a few other stencils, along with some Aquawax (as a resist) and Distress inks, for the background layers, before placement of the main, Poppy image.

The Bleeding Art Tissue is from Amazon UK and the Donna Downey Stencil, Poppy Forest, is available from Oyster Stamps. 

Thanks for looking today .
Back soon
