Nicecrane - girls with goose























Hi again everyone. I have used an image from Nicecrane Designs for today's card. From his 'Adorable Childrens' range of digital stamps (it is number DS#4 if you are interested, and is available here). The two girls deep in conversation with a goose are an illustration to a children's story but I have also given it a different slant by adding my own sentiment. This sentiment I simply created on the PC and matted a few corresponding layers to match those on the image.

I  layered my chosen DPs to follow the design sketch over at CLP and used a few different stitches on the sewing machine to secure the different papers. I even did a running stitch along the Martha Stewart border punched lace as well as giving it a fancy cut top. I also cut a fancy edge along the very bottom of the card base to echo the lacy effect.

That's all for today then.

Tine :)
