Tree Keeper!

The Moth Maiden is a delicate little creature
She is the keeper of the tree's
Adorned in lace and twine rags she makes sure all is well in the forest, but she obviously tells the most shocking jokes.. i mean look at the expression of this tree

********************
The moth maiden started life as tree a long time ago..
She is made from a wooden dolly peg. With bamboo bbq skewer arms.
I inked up my lace background stamp with black and rolled the peg over it, giving the maiden some lacy undies.. Next i stamped the Flowery Lace and Lacy Border onto brown tissue paper a few times, cut the strips out and attached as here skirt and bodice, i wrapped some twine round for added earthyness.
Her moth wings were made by stamping the big moth from the Insects and Butterflys plate onto a piece of grungepaper, which i then coloured with distress inks, cut out using my trusty timmy scissors and attached to her back.
Finally, her hair and make up were courtesy of my copics, but i wasn't too keen on the black bob so i added a fun fibre head dress, which also runs down her back to cover where i attached the wings.
 .........
I can see me making a few more of these peg dollies, what can i say.. i'm just a big kid lol
