Stick Fairy

I took time to play today - in between swap and round robin deadlines. I belong to an online art group which has a monthly "lottery." Each month a new theme is chosen and members can make something with that theme and upload a scan to the Yahoo group. A "winner" is randomly chosen who receives all the pieces of that month. She also chooses the theme for the next month.

The theme for May is "wings." so here is my fun little submission. It's a "stick fairy" - the body and head are a vintage image which I glued to the top part of an inked popsicle stick and then added glittered butterfly wings to the back. The skirt was cut freeform out of a floral-patterned envelope liner. Because the address of the envie showed on the back, I backed it with white cardstock, cut a little longer and scalloped with scissors. Final touches were Paper Frills at the waist, paper flowers and Stickles centers and thin strips of green cardstock for stems. She's ready to fly to the May winner when chosen.
