Crafting for all Seasons #94 "Things with Wings"

Good morning all.

Thanks goodness it wasn't as frosty last night, although it's not much warmer today. Managed some inky crafty time yesterday and hopefully I'll get some projects finished today so I'm caught up with my DT work.

It's time for our next challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is "Things with Wings". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. We're being sponsored by Faery Ink who gave the DT images to work with.

I've used Acorn Faery Fae and coloured her with promarkers and used some stickles and glamour dust on her wings. Wasn't too happy with the colouring as the colours wouldn't blend very well on the paper I used. The background is my first attempt with a Gelli Plate using lots of beautiful autumnal acrylic paints from Paper Artsy. Finished with a bow and button.

Fabulous Sponsor 2015
