Dark Tales

Good Morning, All

This week at

they asked us to make them chilled by 
getting down and dark with Nursery Rhymes.

The theme is Itsy Bitsy Spider
(here in Uk we tend to say  Eency Weency Spider)

I chose this digital image from

which has a whole new way of 

illustrating the Nursery Rhyme

Old Mother Hubbard

 Old Mother Hubbard
 Went to the Cupboard
To get her poor doggie a bone;
When she got there,
The cupboard was bare
And so the poor doggie got none.

I always thought that was a bit unfair so it is good
to turn the tables; these two are going to get a bone no problem!

I printed the image onto digital card,
 coloured withPromarker Pens and 
added a bit of purple diamond sparkles.

I mounted it all on a big piece of  sticky foam sheet
to sit proud of Tim Holtz Kraft resist paper which I had torn and rolled
for effect, then mounted everything onto 
true black card.
