My Heart Has Wings

Fairy Heart Assemblage

February is almost upon us. When I think of February, Valentine's Day comes to mind. I created this whimsical fairy with love and hearts in mind.

The butterfly collage is created with clip art butterfly wings, a heart cut from a jewelry catalog and a face stamped onto scrapbook paper. The rubber stamp is from Inkadinkadoo. I then laminated the design to add stability. The laminated butterfly was then embellished. For the challenge on Through the Craftroom Door, I created my own embellishment by cutting a princess crown out of black felt. I also added sparkle and bling with shiny red and golden yellow rhinestones. The words "my heart has wings" were printed on my computer and adhered to the wooden tumbler game block with modge podge.

This little heart fairy is going to end up on a shelf in my Etsy Store. I hope she finds a lovely home.
