Over Crafty Cardmakers this fortnite, our Spotlight choosen by no other than "Moi" is PLASTIC - now its not that hard a challenge is it ??? is it ??? Non Non Non !!!!
Plastic can be many things peeps, friendly plastic, shrink plastic, sweet wrappers, acetate etc, see not that hard really is it. This is my effort, I really enjoyed doing this and might make some smaller ones now for brooches for crimbo pressies
These are the tools I used
I shaped the wire into four wings
I cut some strips of friendly plastic to put inside the wings of different colours
Not the best piccie in the world I know, but hey ho a kinda close up of one of wings in motion !!
Now stop laughing, yes thats a spillage of gems, I dropped the container, a close up of the other wings cooling
Here are all four wings cut out with normal scissors
I then glued them to foil
I used tiger tail wire to make the body with beads
I used Sticky fingers spray to make some backing paper and then arranged the wings to get an idea of how it was looking
And Dah Dah the finished project, I couldnt fit the sentiment on, so I hand wrote it around the edges of the card and added some gems as well. SEE WASNT HARD WAS IT ???
