Nicecrane Designs Valentine - Tuesday 4th February

Hello Friends!

Today is a Design Team card and wall hanging for Nicecrane Designs... a world of wonderful vintage images..check out the website here....

I normally work with images that are digital stamps and require colouring, but I loved these pre-coloured St Valentine images so much I really wanted to create with them!

 For my first two projects (there will be another tomorrow), I worked with the same image to create a card and wall hanging. I printed the image on to quite a fine linen textured paper that I found in one of my paper boxes and I was quite pleased with the way it printed with a slight water colour effect. Next I die cut it using Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles and used this as the actual card. 

The edges were inked with Tattered Rose, as were the petals of the roses, which are from the Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms set and were die cut using the same paper.

 My wall hanging on wood painted with Indigo Blue English Cottage Pink Iced Gem Acrylic, uses just a part of the image, plus papers from a Fairy Belle Collection paper pad, which was free with a magazine, torn around the edges and fixed to the wood with Indigo Blu's "Slap it on'. I treated the wooden heart in the same way, making a collage of torn pieces from the same paper pad and the sentiment from the main Nicecrane image.

To finish I added some crackle glitter glaze by Mod Podge to the heart and some vintage pink ribbon The roses were again made from Bitty Blossoms.

Hope you like these, please check back tomorrow form my second Nicecrane card...

Love and Hugs,
Carole X

I would love to sit with someone creating these kinds of projects to see if some of their creativity will rub off on me! : )
