I hope everyone is well and fighting fit. I mentioned in a previous post that I was going to post some of my Christmas hot picks from Nicecrane Designs. There are so many to choose from so I am going to just jump right in and start off with my first choice Dolly Dingle.
This is a revisit to this wonderful sheet of Digi Images from Nicecrane Designs.
The original drawings are by Grace G. (Wiederseim) Drayton.
Rather than adding a sentiment attached to the card I went for a tag style sentiment which is attached by a piece of thick thread.
I slightly altered the colours on this because I wanted a darker shade of red than the original bright red.
This image sheet has so much potential. The tiny little images are exquisite to use individually or use the sheet as a whole as I have done above. Check out the little rabbit – bottom right hand corner!
If you look half way down the sheet (on the first card above) , on the left hand side, you will see Mr. Punch. Just in between the two little red oufits.
I cut Mr. Punch from the image sheet and increased the size of him using PSE (other computer image manipulation software will work), I then printed him out several times, cut the layers out and decoupaged him up using foam tape.
Another idea is that you could convert the colour of Mr. Punch to using a colouriser* to alter the tones. Serpia would look nice for a vintage feel.
* Colourisers: I know a lot of my crafting friends have various image altering software and no longer use them. Y’know the sort used for scrap booking and on disks which have images on them. Well get them back out!! lol! Make these images work for you. Oh, you know me I want every penny’s worth…… and more out of craft products I buy and why not. I think I must have been born tight fisted!! lol!
Thats all from me for today. Thank you for your company.
This post is a little longer than I had hoped for but when I get on my soap box it is hard to shut me up!!
Take care all and happy crafting.
