Dragon's Dream TIO # 57 - As You Like It

I have always loved Fairy Tales and on a recent trip to Ireland I was given a book of Irish Fairy and Folk lore. My tag is inspired by the tale of "The Children of Lir". The children were betrayed by the beautiful but jealous Queen who used sourcery to turn them into swans and banished them to cold and stormy seas for 900 years. They retained their lovely voices and eventually made it to a lake on an island (no prizes for guessing which island that was) and remained there until their deaths, singing their lovely songs for all to hear. The Queen, as punishment, was turned into a daemon of the sky, dark and no longer lovely. I hope my tag does justice to the tale!
The stamps used are: swan-Clarity, sky-A Stamp in the Hand Co., waves-Stampscapes Inc., trees- Elusive Images, lady-bravura Stamps. I used DI pads for the background and stamping. Colours used: Aged Mahogany, Bundled Sage, Pine Needles, Victorian Velvet and Faded Jeans. Scrap of music.
Thank you for taking a look, any comments you leave will be greatly appreciated.
