Flower Fairy

This is a tag for Craft Your Passion.  The theme is flowers.  I colored this wonderful digi stamp with my Sharpie markers.  I sprayed the tag with some Heidi Swapp sprays and used some stencils.  I added some small Recollections flowers to the branch that the fairy is sitting on.  The final touch was a bit of lace on the top of the tag.  Thanks for stopping by -Randi
