Digi Haven DT Card - Things With Wings

It's challenge time again at Digi Haven, this time our theme is the ever popular, "Thing With Wings", and we're sponsored by Whoopsi Daisy, who kindly gave the DT some digis to play with.  I chose this thoughtful fairy, coloured her with Promarkers and fussy cut her out.  I then heat embossed her wings with a holographic powder and added some extra glitter to it.
 To create the background, I took a piece of grey, slightly pearlised card, cut it to size and used a spotty stencil and some gesso to make the spots.  Once dry, I ran it though an Embossalicious embossing folder, and highlighted the raised areas of the design with gilding wax.  I then finished the background with some tiny punched mirri stars and some stamped sentiments, using stamps from different sets.
I die cut the stars from grey card, then used a Stampendous encrusted jewel set to heat emboss, it's really glittery in reality, the camera hasn't picked up the sparkle at all, unfortunately.  I stuck the fairy to the top star with glue gel, then attached both stars to the card with a strip of acetate, so that it hangs from the card front and wobbles a bit.
