The theme for this week's inchy was "fairy". I used a picture of my daughter as she dressed up as a dark fairy for Halloween this year.
I took away the wings she had as thy didn't look very nice on the inchie and added some cut from purple petals on floral gift wrap. I used one of the inchie blanks I won from Nina at Purple Faerie Paper Crafts (from a drawing on last week's inchy challenge over at InchybyInch) and covered it with some green paper with purple polka dots. I added some micro glitter to her wings and edged the inchie and the photo cut-out with purple chalk ink. With everything glued onto the base I think it turned out pretty well.
As I was looking through my pictures for this one I found lots that could be converted into fairies so I think I will make a set of them when I have a little more time. Maybe I'll do everyone in my daughter's family (five people and some pets) and turn it into a gift somehow. Oh, the ideas pop up all the time but getting myself organized so I can follow through...well, that's where my problem lies!
I've added a picture of the tiara as I made it for her for this year's costume. It turned out a little heavier and grand than I intended. My daughter loves petite and feminine over grand. The large light beads along the center were from my mother's jewelry so my daughter has a bit of her grandmother with her.

It seems I ended up echoing Purple Faerie Paper Crafts. I didn't intend to but my daughter's outfit was purple and she fit the bill. I do want to thank Nina here for offering the prize of the blanks and a rubber stamp for inchies of a woman silhouette (I almost used it but then thought of my daughter's outfit).

Come and join us and have a "little" fun!
