Now for the Fairies

In yesterday's very successful launch of the Fusion items it was great to see all the amazing samples, created by the design teams, with the incredibly beautiful artwork of Sheena Douglass.
She has another hit on her hands.

Tomorrow is the turn of Leann Chivers and Crafters Companion to launch  an exclusive product to the UK craft market. The Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio and accessories.

Today I would like to share with you some of the cards I made using the Shape Studio Tool and the Fairyopilis CD and Stamps from Crafters Companion which uses the original art work of Cecily Mary Barker.

This card features Snowdrop Fairy and was stamped onto Neenah card which is great for colouring with the Spectrum Noir pens.
The backing papers are from the CD and the plain frame is cut from Centura Pearl cardstock.

 Daisy Fairy has the starring role on this card. She is printed onto Supersmooth paper from the decoupage section of the CD

 The flower embellishments have all been completed using the Epiphany Round 14 Tool which enables you to colour coordinate any addition to your project.                                             

The actual flowers were colour tinted using the Spectrum Noir pens

This lovely backing card is from the CD, but my printer will not always take card so I got round the problem by printing onto Crafters Companion Centura Pearl paper and then sticking it to card with Collall glue.

Here Blackthorn Fairy has been coloured using Spectrum Noir pens. (I'm still learning the blending techniques with these brilliant pens, but practice makes perfect.)

The flower centres are punched
from the backing paper with the
Epiphany tool to provide a coordinated look.

Thank you for calling by, I'm off to make my Husband's birthday card.
A mans card....Hmmmm !  xxx
