I used: Felt angel from Creative Impressions Felt Ornament collection, Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive, Art Glitter Ultrafine glitter in Horizon, Angel Dust and Leather, Connie Crystal Beads: 1.5" French Cut, and 10mm Round.
I began by using a make-up sponge to dab the adhesive onto the "dress" area of the felt angel and then coated it with Horizon glitter. I then dabbed adhesive on the wings and coated with Angel Dust glitter. The halo was then done in Leather glitter.
I brushed the back side of the French Cut Crystal with the adhesive and positioned the felt on top - glitter side down - so that the top of the crystal lined up with the top of the dress section.
I covered the backside of the exposed adhesive with Angel Dust glitter.
Once the adhesive was dry, I ran a clear beading wire through the hole at the top of the French Cut Crystal and ran both ends of the wire up through the 10mm round bead.
I tied the wire around the halo to hold the bead in place and then tied a knot at the end of the wire to form a loop for hanging.
I love the way the crystal magnifies the glitter behind it! I think I'll be using this on more projects!
