Queen of the Forest

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you had a great week and you have fun plans for the weekend!  I was supposed to have another back surgery today, but they rescheduled it for Monday, so my weekend will be spent getting everything in order for the time I will be out of commission.  Starting Monday, most of my upcoming posts will be pre-scheduled, but I hope it won't be long before I'm back posting live.  Anyway, I am here today with my DT post for this week's Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz.  The theme this week is "inspired by a song, book or movie title".  This leaves plenty of room for your interpretation, but please remember that you must have coloring with alcohol markers (any brand) on your project. I was inspired by the song "Queen of the Forest" by Ted Nugent.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are GKD Chocolate Brown and the patterned papers are from the Bo Bunny Forever Fall 6x6 pad.  the beautiful image is Fern the Forest Fairy from Delicious Doodles.  She is also available from Sweet Pea Stamps.  I printed the image on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added some Ice White Pearl Pen accents to the toadstools.  A few opaque gems and a punched butterfly finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Alcohol Markers Challenge and check out the gorgeous work from my DT sisters, Dawn, Penny and Kathi!  We hope you will play along this week!  We have a new sponsor for the June challenges, Delicious Doodles.  Teri is offering the winner 4 digis of their choice from her shop.  You won't want to miss out on the chance at this awesome prize!
