Flights of Fantasy

Well, as I'm blogging again, it must mean that there is another launch coming up for Crafters Companion and I've managed to un-bury myself from my craft room!

I know we probably all say it, but this really is a HUGE favourite of mine, these images from Morgan Fitzsimons are to die for, and there are so many to choose from on CD1, and then, to top it all off, you get CD2 which has even more images on, this time FOR YOU TO COLOUR YOURSELF!!!!!!  It really is such a stunning collection, but wait, there's more, there is a paper pad too, which has double sided papers and FOILED papers as well.  Excited really does not do my emotions justice, I'm already in love & I hope you will too.

Anyway, to my sneaky peaks.  This first one is from the A4 decoupage section of the CD, where there are some wonderful images, this beautiful little lady being one of them, I decided to turn her into a wall hanging, so had to put the decoupage onto a larger base.  I wanted to have the fold back frame look so used some of the backing papers printed double sided onto lightweight printable paper, cut them into triangles, rolled and glued o the edges, I wasn't happy with how they looked so I then cut out some Ivy in various greens, used some spray & sparkle irridescent to give them an early morning dew look and then weaved them around the frame, simply stunning!  I added a couple of flowers using the Forget me Not die, which I cut out of some offcuts of double sided centura pearl and then coloured up using distress inks, I put gems at the centre and dotted these around the frame as well as a bunch in one corner.  A bit of glitter on her wings and around her headdress and a ribbon for hanging and your done.

This next card is one of the card companions from the CD, these are a real go to favourite when you need to make a quick card (though I seem to make them take ages!) as everything you need is on one sheet and it's guaranteed to coordinate.  I used some core'dinations in complementary colours, the blue in the background I embossed with the Embossalicious folder 'tumbling leaves' and sanded back.  The doily has been coloured with Antique linen distress ink as I thought the white would be too harsh.  A couple of buttons finish the card off nicely! 

Anyway, hope you like these - I know you'll love the CDs and the paper pad which launch tomorrow on Create and Craft as the four day deal with Sara and Fiona!
