Feed the Birds - Sunday 27th April 2014

Good afternoon Friends,

I hope you are all having a happy Sunday..a quick post from me today, with my latest Design Team card for Nicecrane Designs.

Have you got any crafting done this weekend? Weekends are usually the time I don't get much crafting time because we are both home and there are places to go and things to do! However, I did get a bit of time this weekend...yesterday I planned my first DT projects for Sam Poole. I'm going to work on them tomorrow and that's all I can say at the moment!

I also had a play with our next planned workshop project..again just  a  play, nothing made as yet. This afternoon there were a few cards I had to make for other people and then I decided to make a 'quick' card with some Lavinia stamps I bought at Ally Pally..well I have no idea where Mr Mojo had gone today, but I wasted about two hours and came away with nothing! Hey-ho! It happens.

Anyway, to today's card: the image is black and white but heavily shaded, so I just decided to give her a brightly coloured dress and hair, but hold back on the rest of the girl. I used drawing inks to colour. I stamped her twice and layered the image to give some depth.

I backed the card with paper from Graphic 45's ' Secret Garden' and I die cut the image and layer using Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles and Romantic Rectangles, inked at the edges with Tea Dye distress inks. I used Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms to create the flowers.

The sentiment was amongst my stash!

Nicecrane has many many digital images that are both pre-coloured and digital stamps...pop over and have a browse!

That's all for today... thanks so much for stopping by!

Love and Hugs,
Carole X
