Goblin Queen

Well over on the Simply B Stamps Facebook page there was a fun little activity going on with a group of us and Betty the creator we were giving her ideas for an image, I suggested wings and a possible dragon the end result was the Goblin Queen. From there a challenge was put forth to create a card with the image but select either a light or dark colour scheme - I went with dark.

Card Tip:

This is the first time I attempted a fantasy hair colour and when I had finished it, the red wasn't quite dark enough, so I added coloured pencil to the darker areas, I did this on her dress as well.
