My oldest is turning 8 tomorrow! I can't believe it; where has the time gone?? I used this super cute "Taylorbell" image from Emma Canning. Printed it out twice, once on white card stock and once on vellum from which I cut out only the wings. I wanted to give them a translucent look as if they were real fairy wings. I added a bit of silver glitter glue for sparkle, but it made them curl right up, so I had to back them with the original wings that I had already cut off. But it still gives a neat look and looks a bit more dimensional as I glued the body on top of the vellum wing layer. I added a smattering of gold stars that are actually leftovers from a border die. It gives the look of a bit of fairy dust coming from her wand. And I added one to her hair for a little headband. Oh, yeah, I also added a sheet of vellum to the pink doily paper to tone down the color a bit and make it less distracting behind the image.
