Using die cuts & embossing powders to create a fairy ... - Louise Sims


Did you recently see the launch of the "Wings & Things" collection from Tonic Studios? Oh my, oh my ... loads of butterfly goodness and a couple of fairies too. There was oodles and oodles of wonderful inspiration from the DT but one in particular caught me eye and inspired me ... it was the skirt on the dress that helped me design my fairy ... thank you Karen ...


So using the Fae & Pixie die set - from Wings & Things collection - I created my fairy ...


She's been coloured with a mixture of Nuvo Brush Script pens, Aqua Flow pens and lots, no oodles of different Nuvo embossing powders. I hope you can clearly see the texture and dimension the embossing powders add to the finished image.


As I always have to 'faff' when making a project, also constantly change my mind and then 'throw everything but the kitchen sink' at it too, I simply had to add more dimension with lots of trims.





Now there is an added extra ... a baby wipe! Yep, that's right, a baby wipe which has been used to create the wings of my fairy.


To explain the full process as to how I created the fairy, - which shows you how the baby wipe is used - I have made a You Tube video. Please be gentle with me as new to this videoing game: dislike hearing my own voice, wish my camera worked properly and more importantly, I need to stop saying 'SO'! You can find my You Tube video HERE. I do hope you can pop over and check it out. All feedback welcome too as want to improve. Sadly do think a new camera may need to go on my Christmas list this year ...
