Just look at this little sweetie!


I stamped her on a Perfect Paper Panel (temporarily out of stock) with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, colored her with Copic markers and paper pieced her outfit. I stamped the wings separately from some iridescent vellum, cut them out, and put them behind the main image for a little more dimension. Here's a close up of the sheen on the vellum:

When I stamped the sentiment, I left off the word "fly" and substituted a banner to complete it, using a Banner Day Die-namics die. Then I stamped the letters on the banner segments with the Wendy Alphabet set and sewed the sections together. I left some thread ends to add another shabby touch. I added some patterned paper strips along with a strip of twill, distressed up the edges and added some buttoned seam binding and it was done!


Here are the Copic markers I used.


Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with Day Four teasers and you won't want to miss them! Just sayin'...
