Vintage Fairy Canvas Panels

A couple weeks ago Tammy Tutterow had a free online tutorial and created a gorgeous canvas panel.  This is my take on the panel.  Tammy did her panels using vintage photos and ephemera.  I decided to put this super cute fairy from Lisa's Altered Art.
The fairy was originally a little witch sitting on a moon or a pumpkin.  I trimmed her out, cut off the halloween wings, and witch hat.  I added the butterfly wings(also from Lisa's Altered Art) and the hat from a scrap of Graphic 45 Secret Garden paper.  The fairy is on a piece of paper from Marion Smith Designs Mad Tea Party collection.  The saying is also from that collection.
The main panel is colored with Dylusions, Distress Inks, Distress Paints, and walnut ink.  The next layer is a book page that I aged using Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Inks and Stains.  I glued it right to the panel using Zip Dry.
The next layer is cardstock that was run through the Sizzix in an embossing folder.  I aged it using Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.  This was raised up using foam dots.
The fairy panel is mounted on mat board and glued with Zip Dry to the embossed panel.  The fairy is raised with foam too.
I used Victorian Velvet and Antique Linen Distress Inks to stain the Tim Holtz ribbon.  I added some vintage velvet flowers to complete the panel. 
I loved this so much I made two more.  
I am entering these into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Distress Challenge.  I am also entering it into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  You might look at the Wednesday Challenge and say what the heck do these fairies have to do with Moms? I made the bottom fairy for my Mom, she came up with the saying :) 
Craft Hoarders Anonymous is having a vintage themed challenge this week too.
I hope you like these as much as I do!
What have you been crafting?

    1. Thank you, Kathy. I am a huge reader, but don't want to rip them up. I have no idea why I don't have a few old junkers around for this purpose. I think a trip to the Goodwill is in order.
