winged things...

Hi everyone, Alix here! Have you seen these chipboard accent packs yet? They come in allsorts of shapes and themes, but this week I've been working with the wings selection...I hope you like what I've come up with :)

This is a dragonfly shape and I've covered it with paper from the Lucky Dip 12x12 selection, overlayed with two sets of vellum wings cut from the Lucky Dip Vellum selection and then wound ribbon around a kebab stick from the Lucky Dip Satin selection! I've shaped a piece of wire for the antennae and covered the body in seed green seed beads and blue glitter {sadly you can't see it in the photo...but it really shines and sparkles!} I'm going to give this as a wand to a special little girl i know...but it would equally look good in a bunch of {dried} flowers or tucked into a plant pot...anywhere really!
This butterfly shape I've made into a badge/brooch. I simply coloured it using a soft blue inkpad and stamped onto it using some shapes from the HOTP Thingamajigs set of stamps in black ink...a word of warning tho...as you can see...the chipboard is very shiny...so don't be like me...put your shape down on a flat surface if you want to stamp without slipping about!! The centres are embellished with a dot of acrylic paint , as is the body.
This last butterfly is my favourite tho...and it was the easiest to do! Again I coloured it using an inkpad, and I made antenna and a body with wire {threaded with some little polymer clay beads I made an age ago...} This time however, I decorated the body with felt shapes...you do remember how much I love felt, don't you? These shapes are cut out of the Felt Fusion heart border strip. Self adhesive, you just trim and peel...and the job is done!
Actually, I seem to be on a bit of a butterfly kick atm...and have a yummy LO to share next time I'm up!
But for now...thanks for dropping by...and go on...have a go at a winged thing yourself!!
