Go Where Your Dreams Take You

I know it's not Tuesday, but I'm going to share a project created for Topflight Stamps! When I saw the Dragon's Dance Clear Photopolymer Stamp Set by Pink Ink Designs®, I knew it was going to be mine. I could not resist the three adorable dragonets and thought the fairy was absolutely lovely.

The focal image is a bit large, so I opted to create a wall hanging that might end up in my Quotes Art Journal. When never knows. 

Here it is:
