Hope Today

Designed by Lisa S. for Nicecrane Designs

knocks your socks off! Hello all, I haven't meant to be away so long but I'm back to share a card and some exciting news. Recently I was asked by Ignacio of Nicecrane Designs to design for him and I jumped at the opportunity. He is a graphic designer who has an online store offering digital images & sheets, backgrounds, collage sheets and more. In case you are not into coloring Nicecrane Designs also offers pre-colored images and sheets. I have found a bonus to using digital products is cost and storage. Simply download, save to your computer and enjoy endless creativity!


Designed by Lisa S. for Nicecrane Designs

For my first card I chose a vintage image from Nicecrane's Kiddie Land II DSL Digital Stamp Sheet. This little guy seems to be having some trouble with his sock and I love the expression on his face, it's priceless. I colored him with Copic markers, fussy cut him out and popped him up on foam tape to add dimension. As I was choosing a sentiment I came across this one and it gave me a giggle! I should note that I used the current sketch from Unscripted Sketches #168 challenge for sketch inspiration. The ABC challenge required us to use "two of something" and my two elements are dies, the banner flag was used for my sentiment and a wonky rectangle provides a nice backdrop for my colored image. Both were distressed with antique linen ink so they would stand out more.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope everyone will drop by Nicecrane Designs to view all of the wonderful products there. It's a papercrafters digital haven!




A big welcome to my newest blog followers and a huge thank you to everyone who's left a comment for me. You guys are the best and I am so grateful for you!!!
Hugs,
Lisa xx
