Sunday Postcard Art "Fair Maiden"

The theme this week at SPA was chosen by Terri of Pringle Hill Studios. It is "Fair Maiden". Here is mine. I chose one of my flower fairy images (see collage sheet below).
The background was created with digital papers from Websters Pages. I merged several different ones together to create my own version, printed it out and then added some stamping and inking etc.The borders are Tim Holtz Tissue tape. I love that stuff!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
