Willow and her Alter ego.
Fairies or Angels is this weeks theme over at Make my Mondays. Now this is well out of my comfort zone, but I do like the challenge to see what I can make.
The base card was given the distress ink treatment with dusky concorde. Lavender papers for the layers, one I edged with a Martha Stewart butterfly edger punch. Willow the name of the fairy is an Inca stamp, she has never been out of the drawer in years. I used cosmic shimmer watercolour paints on the fairy image.
Now the flower. Its made using the Alterations shabby floral die cut, a tip I had at a Craft retreat earlier this year was to carefully run the edges of gauzy material through a candle flame, it realy curls the edges.
So, as mentioned in the title here is Willow's Alter ego. The voluptuous Arabella.
This is just for fun and you may see her again nearer Christmas spreading her magic.I used a stencil on the base card with vintage photo distress inks and a piece of home made paper for the image, which is a Mo Manning stamp, again, water colour painted.
Challenge No2 over at Fashionable Stamping is Handmade Flowers, so Willow will be flying over there as well.
Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
