Meet Glow

Here's one of the newer images from a sheet of stamps by Sweet Pea stamps artist Meredith Dillman called Glow (Plate #202). She's a stunning image on a wonderful sheet of stamps. I love the shimmery wings she has and I added some gorgeous sparkle to them. Be sure to check out the artist's coloring so you can see how my coloring is a different touch.
I added a wonderful sentiment from Oliver Wendell Holmes that says "Where we love is home, home that our feet may leave but not our hearts." I added a huge heart shaped brad from Bazzill and used some yummy cardstock from SEI with gold embossing as my base. I just see this fairy looking out across some distance thinking about her home. As the saying says, even though we are not there, home is with us, in our hearts.
Here's a close up of this wonderful stamp. It's great both individually and with the whole sheet. Be sure to scroll down to Wed's posting from Sweet Pea stamps and leave a comment there for your chance to win some blog candy from them! I am going to announce winners on the upcoming wed!!

Love the stamp but your coloring is out of this world! Are you scanning these or taking a picture? I would love to know how you get your glitter to show up like that. It is beautiful!
