Faeries Steal the Gold Braid

"We the Faeries, blithe and antic, Of dimentions not gigantic,
Though the moonshine mostly keep us, Oft in orchards frisk and peep us."
...Thomas Randolph

Trouble! Faeries create havoc in the garden!
This past summer, on Daughter of the Soil's blog, she wrote about faeries stealing the gold tread she marked certain plants with. I loved the image I imagined it to be, and finally got around to create it.
(Also posted this on my Art blog for Illustration Friday.)

Oh wow! That's FANTASTIC!

That faery on the left looks soooo pleased with herself! It's brilliant.
