Our theme at ABC this fortnight is W for Wishes. Now that could be Anniversary, Get Well, Birthday, New Baby, Wedding, well you get the idea!
We are sponsored by
and we were lucky enough to be given some fabulous Paper Shelter images to work with. I chose Little Bit Grumpy, as that’s just how I have been feeling lately, lol
I coloured her with copics, and her frills and wings have added sakura glitter pen, although you can’t see it in the picture! My photography skills seem to have drifted backwards since I moved. The background mat is a lovely Marianne diecut and the paper is from Bearly Mine’s Patchwork Party set.
I made the flowers myself by heating organza fabric, which I had previously cut into rough circles, with a lighter, decreasing in size to make the layers. It may work with a heat gun, but I didn’t think to try that at the time, if so, it would be safer to do I think. Please be careful, it flares up really quickly and could start a fire, but gives this wonderful crinkled edge to it. I then glittered the melted edges. I made the leaves behind the flowers in the same way. They are fastened together with various brads and metal bead crimps which I have flattened out to make the flower centres. The die cuts around the flowers are a combination of Whimsy dies and DieNamics.
