Button Fairies

 VLVS! host some super fun swaps and I am always excited to participate.  This last one was a little intimidating for me because I had never seen a button fairy let alone made one.  After some searching on the internet and some thought I finally came up with an idea to cast heads out of paper clay.  It seems that was the easy part…it took several tries to get to a design I liked.
I used two VLVS! images, spotted butterfly and corset.  I stamped 2 layers of butterfly wings on acetate.  One is black ink stained with different colors of alcohol ink and the other is embossing ink with clear sparkly embossing powder.  The corset is stamped with clear embossing ink on black cardstock and covered with white Zing embossing powder.  The ruffle is May Arts ribbon.  Buttons are from my collection.
