Fairy Wings

This was an ATC done for the "Wings" swap on Stamp-Shack. The girl is an unmounted stamp that I've had for ages, and not sure who makes it. I had visualized her with some butterfly wings, but none of the butterflies I had would work for this girl. They were mostly too clunky! So, I went through my stamp drawers and found door hinges. I liked the scroll work look of them and they seem to match the design on her sleeves. I masked the girl off and stamped the wings. Then I added some stamped butterflies to give her something to interact with. Drew a pond under her and doodled a bit of flowers and grass to finish of the image. The background is colored with watercolors which I applied with very broad strokes. The fairy is colored with prisma pencils, mainly an orangish red and yellow.
