Fairy - Crafter's Companion


It is with mixed emotions that I post this project today - It's been one of my favorite projects completed for Crafter's Companion, and now I post it as my last official design team post for them.  My term with them has ended and although I am ready to move on to other challenges and excited about what comes next, I'm going to miss working with them and their products.

They sent me a Gemini die cutting machine several months ago and I have been using it continuously ever since.  If you haven't seen it yet, you must check out the deets on the website here.  It's an amazing machine and takes die cutting and embossing to a new level.  It's about to be released on HSN for the first time, so you need to definitely check it out.

I used a beautiful image from the Morgan Fitzsimons Flight fo Fantasy CD, colored her with Spectrum Noir pens, then used one of the embossing folders and die cuts that come with the machine to frame her.  One of them had this great lattice pattern, so I added some color using the Spectrum Aqua watercolors to add the colors inside of the embossed design.  Some gorgeous flowers finished it off.

Thanks again to Crafter's Companion for a fun last nine months.  I have come to love your products and working with you has been great.

Hugs to all!
Jodi
