Make A Wish

Hello friends.  I don't have a card to share with you today.  I decided to try something a little different.


This is a plaque I made for my niece's room.  The beautiful fairy is Sugar Nellie's Make a Wish from Funky Kits.  I colored my image with copics and colored pencils and then added Glamour Dust to the star and her wings.  The wooden frame was very inexpensive and I picked it up at a local craft store.  I painted the frame first and then used Mod Podge to adhere some dp.  I added some sheer ribbon tied into a bow for a hanger.  I first glued my diecut flourishes and then some gorgeous WOC flowers.  Then I cut a few butterflies from my CC Designs butterfly border, added a pearl and then glued them to the frame. 


Here's a closeup of the image.  I think my niece will really like this as she loves fairies and sparkle!  This plaque was so much fun to make ... I think you may be seeing more of these kinds of projects on my blog :)


Thank you for stopping by.

Hugs, Anita
