Time to share a card...

...and a freebie.

I showed you in the previous post this lovely image of a little miss holding a Windflower. It was a delight to colour and thought that I really should make it into a card.


There are two lovely sets of images that you can grab from the Nicecrane Design site.

This is the B/W digi-stamp sheet containing five charming images ready to be coloured...
...and if you would like your own set of images, you can get them here. Remember, as they are digital images you can print them onto the paper/cardstock of your choice and then colour them using your favourite medium. I use alcohol pens but you could use water colours, pencils - whatever you prefer.
However, I know that not everyone likes to colour - or perhaps doesn't have the time to do so...
...not to worry, because the design sheet comes in a pre-coloured version that you can grab here.

Now I mentioned making a card and here it is...
...and as the image was coloured in lavenders & purples, I decided to carry the colour scheme through to the body of the card. The base card is smooth white CS (A4 folded in half to create an A5 card) and the edges were inked with 'Wisteria' - a shade in the new Mixed Media ink pad range from Colorbox.
The background PP is from a 12x12 stack by DCWV. I roughed-up the edges and applied more of the wisteria ink...
...the leaf spray is a Memory Box die called Lavish Branch and I cut it in white CS and purple holographic miri card. The flower is constructed from the two smallest pieces cut by the Sizzix "Tattered Floral" die - more inking on the edges and held together with a brad. The sparkly droplets are sticky-backed domes from Papermania.
The fancy corner in the top corner of the card is cut using a Tonic die - from the set "Deco Frame - Ivy". Again it was double cut and the two layers attached to the card slightly unevenly...
...the image itself was inked around the edge and attached to a matt of the purple miri card before being attached to the card.

That's my card creation but look what Ignacio was able to do digitally over on the Nicecrane Design blog...
...doesn't it look super.
Ignacio has also been very generous - remember I showed you this image in my last post...
 
...well, Ignacio has very kindly offered the image as a freebie - thank you so much Ignacio...
...just right-click on the image above and save . Windflowers come in lots of lovely colours so I would love to see what colour you decide to use on your version. Do please pop back and leave me a comment so that I can come and see what you have created with this lovely image...........................
