Spread Your Wings

I have always liked fairies, and now I have a pretty sizable collection of fairy images I can play with! :) This image from Sweet Pea Stamps is colored with Prismacolor pencils in my favorite colors of lavender, green and peachy colors.  Stickles on her wings, chalks on background.  I followed this sketch, and used an embossing folder with Distress Inks on the different panels.
