This fairy (or faerie) is accompanied by a rose pattern that was inspired by the country rose pattern on my grandmother’s teacup, inherited after her death. As fairies are associated with flora, I figured that they would blend in with their own natural camouflage of the same colors. This originally started as a duo of fairies, called fairy friends, but I attempted to color the image with new markers whose colors turned out more obtrusive than I was expecting at the time. Over time they actually faded to the colors intended, but the scan did not capture that.
