Sweetheart Fairies from Retro Cafe Art

The New Year here and we're going to start with some fun Sweetheart Fairies to decorate, collect, or swap.
More info on the Swap can be found here. You have plenty of time to return them by February 24th.
These are a few of the little darlings I made in the last couple of days.

Some are fun and quirky.
(the bottom piece on the right Fairy is scrap Masonite from a Label Pull Style Frame Cut Out.)

Some are more serious, but colorful. Here I used the Small Heart Tree Stencil.
This shows a few steps into the creation with base-coating, stenciling, stamping, and embossed metal added to the Masonite Fairy.
The small heart is left over from the Stand Up Hearts and Hand.
I use several colors of Fresco Paint added with foam squares for the back.

Here you can see the embossed metal, Stickles, and white Rubons.
The embellishments are added last.

A signature and additional stamping adorn the back..... check out the links below and enter the Swap or just create some for yourself.
Hoping your New Year brings you Joy,
