Valentine Button Fairy

I recently made this Valentine button fairy for a swap. 

I found some lovely clip art for her face/head, printed on cardstock and colored with Indian ink pens and a clear glitter gel pen.  I then coated her head with clear polyurethane. 

I used a red chenille stem with a loop at the top and a set of square sparkly buttons to form her body.  I added red fibers along the length to add a bit of interest.  I then glued the head between the chenille stem loop and the top button.

I made 2 hearts, crocheted with red thread, to use as her wings.  I then glued them behind her upper body.

I think she turned out quite well.  Happy Valentine's Day!
