Down in the woods..............

Well this time I have tried to go for something a little bit different.
Sometimes I get accused of going too dark with my cards, so this time, I took the image and created the Woodland Fairy, in charge of the deepest hidden depths of the Forest.
For me this card, when you look at the details, is about recycling and rebirth, the skull, the spider, the new chick on her lap, the leaves falling around her.
The main Digi Image is Jeepers Creepers, By Heather Valentin, over at Scrapbook Stamp Society. Coloured with Promarkers, I know a lot of people list all the colours they used, but it doesn't particularly help if you don't have that particular pen set, so in all honesty I don't like to do that bit. Although I do have a large collection of Promarkers it doesn't always help if I have used a pen you don't have, does it? After all the whole idea is to provide inspiration for you, to encourage you to think about and do things in different ways........
So back to the card, the main matt is a piece of paper, punched with a Martha Stewart Punch around the page set, I worked from the corners inwards, as I knew that the design was going to be a touch too small for the measurements of the paper, okay I admit I WAS playing! But working from the corners, meant that in the middle of each side, there is a dividing line, which I quite like.
The torn Backing paper, is from a water damaged book of designs by William Morris, a Willow Pattern, some dimensional foiled leaves, and a small sentiment stamped from The Woodland Folk Stamp set by Docrafts.
on the spiders webs I used a quickie glue pen and some foil, and the eyes are some large blue gems.
I have asked someone elses opinion, and she is very relieved its not dark, she isnt a fan of Dark cards, so she likes this one, Phew!!!

Have fun, and do keep an eye on this Blog, there will be some surprises coming soon..........
