Black widow

Another something different for me - I'm starting to dabble in the dark side.  I saw a challenge on Left of Centre to show your spiders and I knew I had the perfect image.  BUT instead of going all girly this time I thought I'd try a dark fairy.

The image is Chin-Chou Kuik's Spooky Blue.  I've used ProMarkers and Copics to colour her with.  She's cut out with a Spellbinders die andn I've added some DecoArt glitter to her wings and the spider web.  There's also a touch of white gel pen to add highlights to her heart, eyes and the spider.

The papers I've used are from Lili of the Valley/Raspberry Road Designs Father Knows Best, Lili of the Valley/NitWits Enchantment and Santoro Gorjuss Neutrals.

The image is mounted onto some black card stock cut with a Spellbinders die to give her a frame.

Accessories black lace, black roses and black stamen are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Black pleated gauze trim and flim strip (Tim Holtz) are from Live and Love Crafts.  Black heart gems from Hobby Craft.  Brass swirl corner from Amazon - that I've had forever (or so it seems).

I think that's listed everything :)

That is a fabulous image and you have really done it justice with this. Love the netting and the roses (note to self, must dig mine out!) and the whole thing really ties together. Stunning and so happy to see this over at Left of Center.
