A flight of Fantasy

Oh dear - despite the best of intentions I have been absent from my blog for yet another week! I will try to make up for it today, with a couple of posts, and here is the first one from the amazing an etherial 'Flights of Fantasy CD' from Crafters Companion.

I have to admit that when i first got my hands on this CD, I wasn't really sure if it was my you know I were towards the cute with my colouring. However, if you just want to sit down an colour for a while, these images really fit the bill and they are so absorbing and not as hard as they just need to have a little time.
I coloured my image with Spectrum Noir pens, but I think these would work well with any kind of artist pencils too, because you can get that pencil lead in to all those little nods and crannies.

The backing papers that you can see are also from the CD and I absolutely love them because they are so delicate and beautiful. I kind of want to spray them with Lavender or something so that you can smell them as well. .....or is that just weird on my part??!

Finally I have used quite a selection of dies on this card. The circle die is from tattered lace, the green sprigs are from Marianne Designs, and the lovely flowers are from Tonic (the are in the middle of the day trellis die).

To get an exact match on the flowers I cut them all from white card and then coloured them with my pens and I have to say, I just love them.

Well post number one done and this space to see if post number two appears later!!

Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend.
