Sparkly wings

Hi everyone,

Hope everyone is okay out there. As I am typing this we have another thunderstorm and it's really dark out there,very dramatic!

A tag for you today with some added sparkle to brighten up the day :)

I am entering this into That Craft Place,Anything Goes challenge here and A Vintage Journey,Dies and Distress challenge here

I have never had such a job trying to photograph something! Took loads indoors and out,flat and standing up,still not 100 percent happy with it as I think there's too much reflective stuff going on but this is the best of a bad bunch!

Tim's dies for the tag,wings,pediment and clock key,found relatives image,metal tape,embossing,distress embossing on key,rock candy glitter on wings,distress markers on photo.

Hope you like it

  1. Hi Donna! Spectacular design! Great little details and perfect image for the tag! Love this!
    I love using glitter and shiny surfaces (I'm like a megpie really, I love anything with a sparkle) and get exasperated when taking photos of such projects. But your photo is great and really shows a great amount of skill so don't worry at all! Good luck with the challenges!

  2. Hi Donna, I love all three of these pieces... have been busy creating and not been around visiting... bad me... but we too have been having rain storms for the past three days... and finally today a little sun.. not much ... but some... anyway.. I love all these pieces.. love the wings, the backgrounds, the stenciling ... and Donna Downey lives not too far from me... and I have never been to her place.. isnt' that weird... just no time it seems... I too teach and play way too much... but having fun is my main GOAL in life... LOL... love all your playing too.. Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie

  3. This is great Donna - so many techniques and all so effective. I love it all but particularly the tag itself, so much to look at. Thanks for sharing with us at A Vintage Journey. I know what you mean about photos sometimes - so frustrating! It looks good to me though. Nikki xx

  4. Your photo looks great to me. What a great design and so many great details! When I pull it up close I see all the glitz on her wings. I hope your storm passes without too much unwanted drama. So scary what havock a storm can bring sometimes these days.
