Having never really worked much with wafer paper, I decided to try all sorts of techniques and see how the stuff actually worked!  The backgrounds of the picture frames are rubber-stamped wafer paper.  The flower petals and bird wings are sponge-painted with Americolor airbrush color. I sponge-painted full sheets of wafer paper and then cut out the pieces I needed. I got the petals and fringy bits of the bird wings to curve and curl by very quickly steaming the wafer paper pieces over the opened top of my electric tea kettle, and then shaping the softened paper with a wooden chopstick. The curly pieces representing the birdsong were done in the same way, taking very thinly-sliced pieces of stamped wafer paper and curling them around a wooden chopstick and then cooled for a few seconds before removing from the chopstick. All of the pieces of wafer paper were attached to the cookies with small dabs of royal icing.

One of the things I admire in you, is your beautiful and delicate creativity. Your work is always stunning, Christine! The birds and the frames are so beautiful, and the intense and dramatic flowers gives the whole set a gorgeous spirit.
