Twisted Sister Oleander

IMG_6741

Happy Tuesday, and welcome to the debut of the first TWISTED SISTER created by Amy!

Twisted sisters are fairies who are also sweet but they have an edge. They come out at night in Fairyland to have fun after everyone else is asleep! They know the latest trends and the hottest parties to go to! Amy named these lovely sassies after flowers...how cool is that?!!

Today, we've got the adorable Oleander. She looks really sweet, maybe even a bit shy. These twisted sisters are perfect for Halloween, but I wanted to also show how versatile these 'dark' fairies could be.



Used lot of hardware mixed in with soft elements. Found this cool paper with leather-like texture. I was also ecstatic to find these metal letters -- remember those? I think they're from Making Memories. Then, I was also excited to use these pins and a quilled butterfly! The rain are really mini brads. Then I finished it off with dots from a Viva pearl pen (pupils, lining).



Hope you also got to visit Traci Porter, Rachel, and of course, Amy for some Oleander sneak peeks! Stay tuned for another Twisted Sister tomorrow!

BTW, I almost forgot. These twisted fairies will be available at All That Scraps on Monday, September 6th.

Have a wonderful day!
