At¬†Craft Your¬†Passion¬†this week the challenge is Where There’s Hope.We have the fabulous A Day For Daisies¬†as our¬†sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don‚Äôt forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they‚Äôve done a wonderful job.

I’ve coloured up the most gorgeous Wings by A Day For Daisies with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.Some Diamond Stickles have been added to her eyelid and just a smattering over her wings as I didn’t want to coat them completely.I kept the rest of the card simple to allow the image to shine ūüôā The card base has been made from kraft and just one layer of torn and distressed paper covers that.I found these beautiful words on the internet and retyped them in Word then once trimmed edged in black to compliment the frame around the image.

Here’s a clearer view (think my face detector thingy is switched on on my camera) :


A length of vintage seam binding has been tied in a bow around still letting the image be seen through.A feather has been tucked in behind with a couple of pearl topped pins pushed through the bow.As the ends were exposed I adhered two clear beads to save any accidents – mostly for my own safety,methinks ūüėČ
