Caterpillar Lady

Hiya ..I have been working on this for ages..You won't find this digi any where it is all my own work..I have done this expecially for my Sons friend.This is inspired from Alice in Wonderland ,the caterpillar on the Mushroom..My Son loves this book and wants the theme for his wedding invites ,so should be very different .It has taken in excess of 20 hrs from the beginning to the end ,and really at the end of the day it is why I really wanted to learn to colour,as I was actually only drawing in graphite pencils before and dabbles in Water colours..but I lost all inspiration when I lost my Mum many years ago ..but have done the odd thing in between for others or myself occasionally in the last few years..
First I scanned the origional and turned it into a digital stamp as it was a lot larger ,then I have coloured her onto Neenah card using both Polychromos and Prisma Pencils..I then mounted her onto white,then Purple..The papers I have used are Santorio Mirabelle and are very glitter encapsulated as I have tried to show in the pictures..It gives the effect of a garden across the bottom of the card.I also used some lighter heart paper from the same pad to bring a break into the green ..The dies I have used for the flowers under and on the edge of the image are Tattered Lace  Mini Cherry Blossom which I cut in pink card and coloured the branches with a SN pen.All the papers are mounted onto Purple Centura Pearl..There are so many colours in the image that I tried to bring them into the out side of the image in the mat card and the flowers too..The colours you see are vibrant,but the real card is even more vibrant..I hope iI have shown it to its best ..
Thank you for taking the time to visit :)xx
