Fairy Dust for Midnight Madness

The theme this week was Wings and Things. This is on top of the weekly sketch. Funny, I had just pulled out this stamp set, stamped and coloured two images the week before. So I was all ready to make this card!

The cloud is 4 layers of flannel I sewed together in a pattern I drew right on the flannel and cut out with very sharp scissors to get close to the sewing line. Then I sprayed it with adhesive and tossed on some glitter. I cut out just the legs and glued them on the cloud. The fairy image is double foam dotted so the legs come up to the level of the cloud but the base of the image is glued directly to the cloud. Clear as mud?? hee hee
