Wishing you a Magical Day Journal Page

Over at the Sweet Pea Stamps Facebook Group, Fernanda the DT Colourist shared a video of how she coloured background of images with chalks and challenged those that watch to have a go.
 For my journal page I have used the Sweet Pea Stamps image by Karen Middleton called "Little Pink Fairie".  I have coloured my image in with Promarkers.  For the background I regularly use plain chalks, pearlescent chalks and Pan Pastels to make my backgrounds as I think they are more subtle than using inks/pens.  For my background I have used dark teal blue, teal blue, yellow and pink pearlescent chalks.  I prefer to blend my chalks in with a tiny corner of cotton wool pad to avoid oils from my hands or sometimes dirt from inks getting onto my project.
Here is a close-up of my image.  I used a clear sparkly Stickles glitter glue but can't understand why the wings have a bluey hue when it is a peachy colour below whereas the yellow/green butterfly still looks OK.

The backing papers I have used are Creative Crafting World Mix and Match CD.

I have finished the journal page off with some doilies coloured with the chalks, die-cut sentiment, washi tape, pearls and some die-cut butterflies with chalk on them.
