Ok, before I start with my projects that I have made for the blog hop, this post is heavy with photos. If anyone has any questions regarding any of my projects and how I made them, please feel free to add them in the comments box and I will get back to you asap.
All images have been coloured using inks from DIs and felt pens. Please click on any of the photos to enlarge.
My first project for you today is one of my favourite images off this sheet. I have used the little boy image which I think looks like a young Lord Byron. I think I shall call him Lord William for now.
This card was inspired by Great Expectations and Pip. I was thinking about Miss Havisham being locked away in her house.
This is the second card using the “Lord William” image. This time I resized him and made him slightly smaller.
Just a little close up. This young man has a beautiful face. It wasn’t until after I had photographed these that I thought maybe a fob watch would have worked nicely as an embellishment.
I really think you can go both ways with this image, either vintage or steampunk. I would really like to know what you guys think.
For my next card I used this sweet image of a nursing mother. This image would be great for Mothers Day, New Baby, First Birthday, Christening invites…. oh, endless uses.
For the next two cards I used the same image. One printed in black outline and one printed in brown. Just experimenting really! lol!
I used the same image again on the next card but just changed the colours.
Ok, for my next project, I am going to be honest with you. I have yet to learn how to resize the images exactly to fit the dies that I have in my stash. Anyway, I coloured this image in (which was an absolute delight to do so) and then thought ugh! So the only die I could find in my stash was an Arch die. I used it upside down to make a sort of pennant.
When I was making this I did think this could be used for Easter. Ok, bear with me…. The little basket and the lady’s Easter bonnet. Anyway, with that in mind I used pretty yellow spring flowers for my embellishments. One tip: I frayed the chunky cord at the ends so that it would lie flat when I attached it.
This is the exciting part!!!!!!!
The Nicecrane Designs image sheet that has been allocated to my blog as a prize for the blog hop is this one…..
