Crafty CardMakers – Things with wings!!

I’m sure this will be a popular challenge being as there are so many lovely ways to interpret it. Just make sure the main focus of your project is the thing with wings!!

For my DT piece I thought I would mix things up a bit and decided to make a button fairy – a complete piece of whimsy and very simple to make but there are lots of artistic possibilities for these.

I have gone for a vintage image for my ‘fairy’ and used some wired buttons and beads from my stash to make her ‘tail’. Her wings have been cut from the Tim Holtz ‘Fanciful Flight’ die and embossed with aged scarlet frantage.

Don’t forget to pop over and see what the other DT members have been up to – we hope they will inspire you to enter your own project at Crafty CardMakers.
