Captured Fairy

The other day I found this little bird cage in my local craft shop and immediately fell in love with it. So I decided to put a captured fairy inside it and decorate it with flowers etc. I made most of the flowers myself. The little fairy is an altered Paper Whimsy image.



Roses made with various Spellbinder dies


 Unfortunately we are having such bad weather here at the moment that I am finding it almost impossible to take decent pictures. The whole thing looks a lot better in the real....

Lovely Astrid.
Just dropping by, it's been a while I know. Challenges and spring planting are keeping me so busy.
Take care and I hope you get better weather soon. Hot here.

Wow wow wow Astrid - this is another "eye-candy" project! The Spellbinder Roses are divine. What was once a pretty bird cage, is now a stunningly gorgeous work of art.

I hope your weather soon improves - it's still very mixed in this part of Yorkshire - all four seasons in one day!
Have a happy week - hugs, Sylvia x

Love this Astrid, everything looks so gorgeous from the embellishments to the little fairy standing inside. I might need to catch myself one of these - totally delighted with your creation!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
