Rope Swing


Rope Swing - This is my DT project for Crafts 4 Eternity and Alphabet Challenge Blog. The challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity is Teddy Bear Picnic. The challenge at Alphabet Challenge Blog is A = Anything with Wings.

My DP are K and Company Nature. I love the papers in this pad.


I could not resist using this sweet little fairy bear from Stamp Fairy. Isn't she the cutest?

I colored her with Copics and added Stickles to her wings, bow and bodice. I thought it would be fun to extend the ropes on her swing a little further out with twine, that I hung from a "tree branch." The branch is a Quick Kut die that I inked.


The wings on the fairy are small and hard to see, so I added another winged thing with a butterfly. The butterfly is a MS butterfly. The 3 pearls were made with a Kiwi pearl pen.


My flowers are recollections and a stem that I cut the flower from. I really like using colored wire that is spiraled around a paintbrush.

It has been a while since I have used dewdrops, but I rediscovered them for this project.
