Just a quickie


Here's a piece I did this morning, using no backing papers, which is way out of the box for me. I'm actually really pleased with the way the background turned out, what do you think? The tree and horse silhouettes are by Bethany Lerie, who very kindly shares her work on DeviantArt.
I made this one for the following challenges:
The Burtonesque Dolls - Sleepy Hollow inspiration
Whimsical Ink Sorority - repeating image. I used the same tree repeating, yay for being able to resize digital stuff :D
Haunted Design House - sinister shadows. This is more "shadowy" than containing any actual shadows but I wanted to enter it anyway :P
