Happy Saturday Friends!!
It is week 26 Fairies and Angels at Sugar Creek Hollow.
We have a wonderful sponsor:  A Day for Daisies who will be sharing a $12 gift certificate to the winner of this weeks Challenge!!
So find a Fairy or Angel and use it in a Vintage or Shabby chic style and link up!!
I can't wait to see what you come up with!
First I want to thank Tammy for letting each of the DT members pick out an image they would like to use for their projects this week.  I chose Angel Waiting, and I chose to color her in GIMP (as if you didn't know that was  I decided to go shabby with a sprinkle of vintage looking card.
I used some different paint brushes to create the polka dot grass, and checked sky.  I painted in some clouds, and kept the flowers pink and simple.  I distressed my edges and inked everything with Ranger's Vintage Photo distress ink.  I used only one of my favorite Champagne flatback pearls from Pro 31 Designs.  It is the center of the clear acrylic flower in the upper left.  I did use some ivory beaded trim, ivory leaf trim, golden yellow rosette trim and blingy bling mesh in brown.  The pink seam binding is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and the tiny pink roses are from my stash.
I colored the hair in a golden color and added some lighter highlights, I used the same color on the wings.  I do have some brown text on the wings, it is just hard to see in the photo.

I used one of my favorite Martha Stewart punches which you can see above tucked in under my Angel image.
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!
