This week I had the pleasure of working with a digi from Barbara Jensen and I chose this fabulous design called Poison Ivy. I really like the more racy designs that she does but I am really nervous of working with them as I am not sure that I can do them justice. I was however drawn to this one as I love the intense look she has in her eyes. I felt that she suited a fiery mane of hair so colouring with my Promarkers I used oranges and reddy browns to shade it in and complimented it with a pale body tone being careful with my shading and blending.

I used a Nestabilities die to cut it out and a mat in dark brown. I used a sheet of  dark green card for the base and added a copper metallic card which has a swirl design embossed onto it and a piece of handmade paper with a fern leaf flocked onto it. I added a brown suede ribbon to cover the join adding a couple of leaf brads and a self adhesive gold fabric glittered butterfly to complete the card.

This image reminded me of a Garden of Eden type image as she looks a bit like a maneater and so I used a sentiment which would entice a man to meet her in the garden. Dressed as she is I am sure no man could resist………
