A very BIG thank you...

...to Ignacio over at Nicecrane Designs.

I received some lovely comments on some recent posts and the offer of being able to choose something from the Nicecrane Designs website. I chose Sweet Kids 3 and Ignacio very generously sent me the whole set of "Sweet Kids"...
...don't you just adore these lovely images.

My printer hasn't been playing very nice recently (I think some of the ink is getting low) but I just couldn't wait to print off this image and get it coloured in...
 ...and get it made up into a card.
 Aren't these two little darlings adorable...
 ...and perfect for colouring with a muted palette of colours.
I tried not to go too mad with the embellishments because I didn't want anything to detract from the image...
...just some doilies, ribbon, lace and a few flowers.

I made an 8x8 inch card blank out of cream CS and inked the edges with Antiqued Linen Distress ink (all the edges of the various layers were inked). I had some script 12x12 PP which I cut to layer onto the card blank and a piece of cream cotton lace was wrapped around this before it was stuck down. A smaller piece of the script PP was mounted onto kraft CS and then wrapped with jute twine. The white doily was slipped under the twine and secured in place then the wax paper die-cut doily was slipped under the cream lace and secured in place.

The image was coloured with Spectrum Noir pens - matted onto kraft CS and mounted onto the card using 3D foam. I used brads to create the centres of the flowers before attaching the blooms to the card with some more 3D foam.

Nicecrane Designs have a fabulous selection of digital images and they also have a blog where there are plenty of examples of how to use them - do pop over and take a look...especially if you love Victorian/vintage style images.

Ignacio - I hope you like what I did with the first of the images that you kindly gifted to me..............................................................................
