button fairy



The theme at wednesday stamper this week is "button dollz" I have to admit that I can't make my mind up about what I think of the whole button doll thing. They often look a bit freaky and their tails remind me of scorpions. but nonetheless I decide to have a go and see if I could make something I liked. I have stamped the fairy (Inka) onto shrink plastic, painted with pearlescent paint, and stuck the shrunken image to a button and then made a straight "tail" which I thought of more as a hangy bit. I also attached a tiny flower button, and attached a brooch back. I thought it could be worn as a brooch or a necklace (pin to ribbon). hmmmm I still can't decide if I like it but at least I had a go.

as you can't see the scale, I suppose I should mention it's less than 5cm long.

the photos are rubbish as it's dark. I could wait until tomorrow, but to be honest the days aren't a lot better at the moment! roll on spring!
