Sizzix Moveable Garden Fairies

Hello.....are you finding time to craft or are you enjoying the beautifull weather outdoors?
I spent some time this week playing with "Garden Fairy" dies from Sizzix. They are fun and easy to use and lend themselves to lots of possibilities using bits and pieces already in your craft stash.
The faces are stamped then cut out using "Framelits" dies. This is the first time I have used Framelits and they are fabulous. I used watercolour pencils to colour in the faces, then blended the colours with a very small brush dipped in water. I added a little shading under the chins and on the arms to give depth.
The skirt on this little one was made using petals cut from green tissue paper with the Sizzix "Tattered Flowers" die.

For this skirt I cut tissue paper using a Sizzix doily die. I used 4 doilies...each one was folded into 4, then the doilies were glued together. I applied some glue round the bottom of the skirt and sprinkled on some German Glitter Glass. To add depth to the skirt I puffed up the folds. I printed the wings image on to copy paper, traced the pattern on vellum with a Sharpie, sprayed a little hair spray and, finally, sprinkled on some DecoArt Glamour Dust

For a different look on this one I used artificial leaves for the skirt and white acrylic paint, applied with a stylus, around her top.
If you like playing you will love these dies.......
