Mushroom Forest Pop up - Featuring Amanita in Polychromos

Hello... well it's Good Friday here in Australia, (Thursday everywhere else, Timezones are such whacky things!!) and so not being religious myself...I just wanted to wish everyone this coming weekend a Merry Easter Egg!! LOL... I hope you eat lots of chocolate and get to visit with lots of friends and family and have a merry old time.

Now lets get onto my card... This week I had SO MUCH FUN!!! I got playing with my PENCILS AGAIN!!! whooooo hooooooo!!! I LOVE MY POLYCHROMOS!!! so if anyone is one the fence about buying pencils, or are tossing up about which brand.. one.. GET OFF THE FENCE and get your beehind into the art store and go buy some.. they are soooo much fun.. and too, BUY POLYCHROMOS!! you will not regret it!! Anyhoooo.. a little off track. teehee... I do that.. sometimes.. :/

So I finally got to play with what I will now and forever more affectionately call my Polys on an image that was not an Animal!!, Yep I had to have more then just blending skills... LOL, and did I have a little gem to play with. I've had this image stashed away for quite some time, and I'm so glad I waited to use her... and I think you'll just LOVE what I did with her, cause I had some FUN!!!
I "GUESS" I'll maybe show you the card then shall I... *Great big cheeky smile*
I MADE A POP UP MUSHROOM FOREST!!!... oh crud.. I just realised the heading of the post kinda gave it away... Oh well... ITS STILL SUPER COOL!!!. 

Isn't "Amanita" the Toadstool Baby Fairy just the sweetest!!! You can purchase here from Mo's Digital Pencil... Just follow THIS LINK!!! Here.. I'll give you a closer look at her CUTENESS!!! 
I've coloured her completely in Polys (Polychromo Pencils) without any blending fluids of paint thinners... This is just pencil on pencil and LOTS OF LAYERS and BLENDING!!! and yes... my hand is all crampy and feels like an eighty year old with arthritis now.. apparently I need to develop "a pencils hand"... I think I just need to chop it off.. LOL
Anyhoo.. I better go back to the start... and show you the front cover, and then I'll let you have a look at some more picies and angles. 


Now for all the details, I'm sure you would like...
