Black and Bright

Morning all. 
Over at Crafty Boots this fortnight the challenge is 'Black and Bright', so use black and a bright color...simples. 

Here is my interpretation.
This is a page in my Dylusions journal, i adore this journal and would highly recommend it to anyone (think i have recommended it to a few, lol).

The background is Black Marble and Squeezed Orange Dylusions sprays.
The border across the bottom is a Tim Holtz one from Classic 6 set and the side border is from 'Further around the edge by Dylusions.

 Unsure why this pic has come out this way round but it doesn't seem to want to move either. Anyhow the spider is from stampotique, i love this little guy.

The writing is my latest achievement, cant believe i have finally got the hang of it, but i have and i love it. The style is from Dyan Reaveley (HRH Queen of Dylusions). It is with a black POSCA pen and edged in Sakura white Gelly Roll pen.

This lovely lady is the one and only Curious Corrin (she is my favourite stamp) from the Dylusions stamp set of the same title. Her hat is from Bags of Bunting set and her wings are from Ruby Rainbow set.
She is coloured with Pro markers in the following colours: 
Orange, Tequila Sunrise, Bright Orange, Burnt Orange, Pumpkin, Sky Blue.

The leaves are from further around the edge too and i bleached out the black ink using water in a water pen and once dried went over with the squeezed orange. 

Thank you for looking and good luck with the challenge.
