Dreaming again!!

Actually I wish I was dreaming more…had a couple of bad nights sleep- no idea why!! It's time to join Dragons Dream Tag It On - this time it's number 176 and the theme is "Letter 'W' and Lace" 
I enjoyed playing with my Lavinia fairies so much the other day that I could resist a whimsical little tag with fairy wings!!
I love the idea of fairies drying their wings on a washing line and this is one of my GD's favourite stamps! This time a naughty fairy has taken two pairs and made a kite!!
The wings were all painted with Cosmic Shimmer paint but sadly, no matter how I held the camera I couldn't get it to shine here!
The lacy sun is shining though and so is the fairy dust(stamped with Brilliance gold ink)!  The background is distress inks and the grass is the edge of a stem.
I added some lace that I had run a mixture of pewter and bronze paint over.

I am linking to Dragons Dream TIO 176 'Letter "W" and Lace'

Thanks for looking, Chris

Cheeky fairies, they use my washing line too.
Join the club with the sleep thing.
I seldom sleep, so now in my head I do philosophy in the small hours.....sort out all the world's problems!

I love this Chris. I nearly bought this washing line once but went for the pixie clothes. I still love this one and it is still on my wish list.

The wngs on the line are adorable, and the wings turned into a W kite is ingenious. I really like your sense of humor AND your take on this challenge. Wonderful tag!
