Faery Ink New Release - Fae Queen Arachne

This fabulous digi is the new release from Faery Ink, her name is Fae Queen Arachne, and I think she is marvelous!  She comes with and without wings.

In mythology Arachne is a mortal woman and talented weaver who challenged the goddess of crafts and wisdom, Athena.  There are different versions of the story but they end with Arachne being turned in a spider, which is why, according to mythology, spiders are called arachnids.
I have coloured Fae Queen Arachne with Graph It markers; Hair; 9201, 9203, 9205, Skin; 41204125, 4145, 4150, 4155, Wings, Crown, Make-up, Top, Necklace; 6110, 6120, 6130, 6140, 6175, 6180, Eyes; 7119.
The black base card is covered in spider's web and embellished with a purple ribbon and black lace.  Fae Queen Arachne is mounted on the card using Pinflair glue.

he sentiment "When spider webs unite, they can tie up a lion." is a Ethiopian Proverb which I typed onto one of my own photos after some slight tinkering with it in the Craft Artist Programme.  I have mounted it on white card which I have coloured with Graph It marker 6140.  I decided on a positive sentiment as spiders get a really bad press, I'm not a fan but as long as they leave me alone I will leave them alone, unless they are really big...yuck! 

Creative Blessings.  x

This is the prettiest arachnid I've seen Tracy and the web background is fabulous. That's an interesting proverb, I wouldn't like to put it to the test though xx
