Fairy Wings
Yesterday I met the cutest little girl at work, she was all dressed up and told me that it was her birthday. I was taken with this little princess and thought it would be nice to make her a card. I don't get the opportunity to make girly cards too often, so this was going to be fun. Here is what I created.
 
I made the wings using the following techniques.
Step 1
Mix Terri Sproul Mixers onto a non-stick mat and let dry.


Step 2
Once the mixers were dry I placed them behind the wire formed shaped wings I made.
Step 3
I filled the wire wings with 3D Crystal Lacquer and let this dry.

 Step 4
Once the wings were dried completely, I was able to snip away any excess mixers from around the wire edge.
Step 5
I stamped my fairy image and colored her with Terri Sproul Mixers and Copic markers. The mixers left a beautiful sheen to the fairy. And of course what would a fairy be without a little glitter, exactly, so I added some glitter to her crown.
Step 6
 I used pop dots and double sided sticky tape to adhere my fairy to the front of my card and to keep the wire wings in place.
The finished result of this card looks so beautiful and I know this little five year old is going to love her card.  I love the fact that I can make more of these cards. However, I will need to make or find a castle image. The one I used was chipboard and I can't replace it, but I was happy to use it up.
