The illustration is black & white, as originally published.  I scanned it from a copy of the Lion, the witch and the wardrobe, and messed around with it in photoshop (sharpening it and getting rid of the show-through printed lettering on the other side of the page), and printed it out enlarged.  I had to borrow the book from the library, as my copies are at my mother's house in NH, about 16 hours drive from my house. 

I used plain old Prang watercolors to colourize the image.  My grumbachers are all dried up =( from lack of use.

and, my swap partner just LOVES it.  I'm so glad.  I really love it when something I make is treasured by the person who it ends up with.  Makes the time you put into something worthwhile.  The worst is when you make something with a lot of effort and it's not appreciated, or worst (like if you made xmas presents) they'd really rather have something non-unique and store bought... how tragic.

That is completely gorgeous, kitkabbit! It is so obviously made with love and the end product is something I would personally love on my wall!

Oh, kittabit, that's * beautiful! *. All of it!  Goodness!  I showed it to hubby, and he thought it was beautiful, too.  What a wonderful job!  The items are all just completely enchanting.  I'd treasure them, too!

Definitely! I realized one thing as well - it's almost the inverse of typical paper tole. There it's a 'central image' that is built up, as if it's trying to leap off the page (and in some cases choke the viewer... ew!) Kitkabbits is the total opposite. It's higher on the sides than the center, 'drawing' the viewer into the picture rather than launching it at the viewer - and it's 100% appropriate to the theme of the books, and especially that scene.
Ok, I'm analyzing too much - but hey, I love the piece!
