Papergirls Monthly Challenge

This month challenge was set by Chris:

"Hi all... well here we are with this months challenge :D We would like you to alter a jigsaw piece, any shape or size you wish. The only stipulation is that it MUST include 'bling' well it would have to wouldn't it when I'm setting the challenge..lol"

I hope that this is blingy enough for you Chris hahahahaha

I was very sad that I ran out of time to make my angel (last weeks challenge by The Papergirls) so I decided to incorporate the two! I used a chippie jigsaw piece.

I love this image of the angel, he is so beautiful. He was stuck on and then stickled all round (sounds painful hehe). I attacked our non-feather duster( you know the type, with long threads instead of feathers!!) and stuck them behind like a sort of halo effect. Some pretty beads on silver wire completes the piece.

Interestingly when I looked at this today he looks like he has been crying......spooky!!!!! Probably colour run from the glue eh......mmmmm.....

Big thanks for taking a look, I know you are all busy for Christmas XXX
