A fairy in the great outdoors


This week's Flutterby Wednesday's (FWB63) theme was to put a butterfly or fairy in an outdoor setting. I thought this stamp from Faerie Song was perfect for the theme.

The plant she's playing among looks like dandelion to me (having spent my life fighting them in lawns and gardens I know that leaf formation), so that's how I colored it. Then I thought perhaps it was thistle? I just did an image search, but I couldn't tell for sure. There were a variety of flower forms shown, but I couldn't get a good look at the foliage. Anyone have an opinion?

The card is pretty simple -- the only real embellishment is a little glitter dust on her wings. The image is colored with pencils and OMS.
