JUNE BLOG HOP SNEAK PEEK



Get ready for some fun hopping this evening!!! We are having a sneak peek here at Paper Wings of some of the NEW images that will be in the 2011 Inspiration Book, due to debut in just under a week. I chose to do the Fly Fairy - it is fast becoming one of my favorite new images (although I have more than one favorite). I stamped the fairy on vellum and embossed her in a new embossing powder Medieval Metal which i got at the Stamp Expo in Collinsville, IL. June 12. I love the color. I couldn't find my vellum tape to tape the vellum (which I cut with my nesties) so I used a bit of glue which bled through - so opportunity to use some paper flowers to hide the glue spots. I stamped the background stamp included in the set on the paper flowers and added a bit of bling in the center. For the second image, I embossed a new cuttlebug folder in the center of Juliet paper and then cut out the center with the large label nestie die, then stamped and embossed the fairy in the cut out center. Just a bit of flesh color to her face, brightened up her wings with the stardust pen and a teeny button (from some old Barbie doll clothes) on her coat. A couple of pearls in the corner and the card was complete. So sit back relax and enjoy the blog hop tour:

I am really beginning to love this Fly Girl! What beautiful creations! I would have a tough time picking a favorite. Even seeing them in real life, they are both equally gorgeous! Great job, my friend!!!
