Things with Wings Challenge at Fitztown

I made this card for my sister's birthday this month and thought it was a good card for the Fitztown challenge this week, things with wings.   Isn't the stamp I used for this card lovely?  This digital image is part of the Fae collection of stamps by Morgan Fitzsimons and you can see her collection here.

My background paper was created with my Gelli plate.  I used four different stencils to layer the background along with four different colours of acrylic paint. I tried to use similar or complimentary colours when colouring my image with my Copic markers.

Come join the fun at Fitztown with week and check out the new releases of Morgan's images .  Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.
