Fairy wall Hanging

Today I would like to share a little wall hanging I made. This image is so adorable - you'll find her in the Lisa Victoria collection.

Fairy Wall Art
Finished Size: 8 x 9.75" 
Bubble Fairy from Lisa Victoria
Jet Black StazOnInk Pad (Tsukineko)
Heavy cardstock (Unknown)
Dominoes (Unknown)
Colored Pencils: (Derwent)
Foam Mounting Tape (Scotch)
Omni Stick (Hammerhead America)
Foam Board (Unknown)
Blue Mat Board Scrap5 x 7" (Unknown)
Black Mat Board 8 x 9.75" (Unknown)
Heat Gun (Marvy)
2 Soda Can Pull Tops or Table Top Stand (Unknown)
  1. Position six dominoes, blank side up, into a rectangular shape on a flat surface.
  2. Stamp the image with StazOn on the domino surface (centered) and allow to dry.
  3. Heat set image with heat gun.
  4. Color the image with pencils using the blue on the flowers, wings and bubbles.
  5. Using the purple pencil, color over the blue areas lightly allowing both colors to mix.
  6. Color the leaves green.
  7. Position the scrap mat board on a flat surface.
  8. Begin adhering the dominoes, starting with the middle piece, to the scrap mat board with the Omni Stick by placing a few drops on the back of each.
  9. Allow the adhesive to dry.
  10. Working with the foam tape, create a strip about 3" long, layering and adhering six additional strips to it, repeat three more times. (This will add dimension to the frame.)
  11. Attach foam tape to the back of the black mat board at a diagonal.
  13. Once the matted dominoes have dried, adhere the mat, centering the domino art in the window.
  14. To create a sturdy backing for hanging, cut a piece of foam board slightly smaller than the mat (about 7.75 x 9.5"). 
  15. Cut a piece of heavy card stock the same dimensions of the foam board and adhere to one side. (This will create a finished look to the back of the wall hanging.)
  16. Adhere the bare side of the foam board to the back of the wall hanging and allow the piece to dry.
  17. If desired, attach to pull tops from aluminum cans to the back of the wall art for hangers, otherwise a small table top stand can be used for displaying.
