Hello Everyone! Sorry I had to change the name... it was late at night... Here is my first craftster effort inspired by Amy Brown Art. I sleep to dream and quite often I dream of a place where I can relax and unwind Smiley I started with this picture from St. Vincent De Paul's and it kind of took a life of it's own. I thought this picture was quite tacky but I fell instantly in love with the soft green velvet trim around the guilded gold frame. 



And here is the finished product..... *Poof! (insert faery dust here)



This is a scanned copy, the reflection off the wings and all the glitter made it hard to get a clean picture. The faeries are 3D and the wings come up off the page as if they're wings are in a flutter while they are gracefully resting in their cocktail/champagne glasses. I used a lot of different things to create texture.



This was so fun! I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it. I think I'm going to mail this to my friend for her birthday. Thanks for stopping by

Brilliant!  I could see that hanging on the wall and getting tons of compliments instead of crazy stares!  Good job!
