There are fairies in my craft stash....button fairies!!

Having been enticed by the wonderful things in CarolV's gallery over on Docrafts, I joined her button fairy swap. I'd not made one before, but they look so sweet I couldn't wait to have a go. Here's attempt number one.....


She's a fairy with attitude! The body is a Gorjuss girl, coloured with Promarkers of course, with wings made from angelina fibres using a Papaerartsy butterfly's wings. I think I need some slightly stronger wire to thread the buttons on, as I can't get them to stay in a nice curve. Other than that, I'm quite pleased with her. There are some lovely tutorials on the web on how to make these little lovelies.

I'm entering this into the Ooh La La challenge which is to use their blog colours, which are lilacs and greens, hope this counts- her wings are more purple than blue, whatever the photo says, lol!!!
