What a little angel



Good Morning Peeps, I am here with some more Nicecrane Design creations and also my mid month Penny Black and More card.


Thank you for your kind comments and messages. I am in a bit of a MS relapse at the moment and walking and standing is painful but now have some new meds although they are making me like a zombie....... but not too much new there I guess......... and nights are like a war zone with the hallucinatory affects of them. But there is of course a positive side, I am having to sit most of the time which means I can craft for England !

On to my work and I think lots of you will know what I mean when I say you see a stamp or image and can immediately visulise the card you are going to make, well the beautiful image on the top card was one of those, she is such a little angel. I could see her decoupaged and standing in an aperture with little added colour other than some gold glitter on the Christmas tree and some die cut stars, she is far too pretty to fuss with. She is one of the images from the Vintage Christmas saver pack, great value at $4.50 for about eighteen images.


I have used a new stamp for my Penny Black mid month card called Jubilant 40-286 stamped onto a 'splatter' background.....very technical term here aka messing about with Dylusions. I stamped it twice to decouapge the main flowers which are pained with Dylusions, the leaves have been coloured with Chamelion pens. The sentiment is from the Special Wishes set 30-229.


I absolutely adore this image, not only the colours but the little girls angelic face. She is from the Children in Victorian Age 111 design set. The frame is from Tonic which I randomly stamped with distress inks before making up and then rubbed over with a couple of colours of gilding wax. 


This card has one of the eight designs in the Adorable Christmas design set teamed up with Penny Black Reindeer dies and an embossed frame with I coloured with gilding waxes. The sentiment on this card and the one at the top is from All Occasion Dies, clever sets as the Happy comes in a set in two sizes and the Christmas in another sets again in two sizes and then there are also Birthday, Anniversary and so on and they all mix and match and at between £4.40 and £5.50 a set great value for money.

Hope you all have a good week.

What beautiful cards Brenda. Love the Nicecrane images and the card design you chose for each image but for me the star of the show has to be the wonderful Penny Black flower with the wonderful colours and splatter background.
Hope the new meds do the trick and you soon feel better xx

Ellie said...

Such beautiful cards Brenda, I am so loving those vintage images, they make such beautiful cards! Gorgeous lily image too, and I love the effect you got by messing with your dylusions :-) Love the different colors you used for the splatter.
Happy to hear you're feeling better and up to create cards. It's a shame good medications always have to have such bad side effects though.

All so lovely, Brenda. The top card is really special - just love this! And your splatter background is wonderful - I need to try more splattering! Great colours! The others are fabulous too! So sorry your MS is setting you back - I hope you can feel better soon. I do enjoy seeing your cards!
