Something simple for this months challenge over at Digitally Sweet.
I wanted to use fairies and mushrooms/toadstools - I found the perfect fungi image from "spring has sprung" by Ephemeras Vintage Garden and decided to use my favourite fae folk from Fripperies and Butterflies.
With retrospect, that was the simple bit - I spent a very long time digitally cutting out the toadstools from their background, in the end it was millimetre by millimetre! All I then had to do was place the fae folk fluttering round, adding shadows here and there - the overall image reminded me of pictures from an old Lithographic book on Natural History or something of that ilk.
This image is 100% digital.
