Lots to do - Haberdashery

Phew what a day. Today Pounce became a fully fledged hunter waking me at 6:00 to show off his prize a young stirling. Poor little thing did not survive but you cannot be cross it is what cats do. Will not be long before Minx and Izhe are bring home their trophys, if you are reading this Fifi take warning the IMPS, at 16 & 14 months, are not much older than your two.

After that excitement forgot all about the GP today so no idea yet who won!

So this is probably two challenges it is certainly Lots to do Haberdashery challange with a strip of Basic grey lace for a head band complete with fibre side piece. The face set the whole thing off, it has been coloured with ink pads (there is a harliquin pattern under there somewhere) spray paint and glimmer mists! pages from 2 of my favouriate pads have been cut up and decouparged on. Sequins applied for brows, gems surround the eye sockets and decorate one cheek. the whole was then sprayed with glitter varnish and finally a fantasy film butterfly stamped twice and added in layers for diamension. This truely is the face of a flower power child of the 1960s.

AllSorts challenge set by Brenda calls for wings as part of your project. Suspect this is not quite what she had in mind and if there is time/inspiration later in the week may make something else for that challenge but as it stands this is it.
