Being Monday time is at a premium, dentist shortly then work so I will get right to it and share a couple of cards both using Ignacio's Nicecane images and both of my finished samples have been beautifully enhanced by him. How I wish I could get me head round my Photoshop programme and do the same, I spent ages the other day playing around with it but the best I achieved was a halo around the image with a dark line, so if anyone knows the secret please share.
The card base for the top card was created with the Cricut Mini by welding a butterfly border from Martha Stewart all occasion cakes cartridge to a basic square from George cartridge and lightly shading the butterflies with Pan Pastels. It's very similar to a well know die that is available which I do have, but when you consider the costs comparisons of a single die and how many different things you can do with the Cricut it speaks for itself. The image is from the Victorian Ladies Bird sheets and links to that as well as the Cricut are on the thumbnails below.
This card is a fairly simple make but it's such a lovely image it needs little more than coordinating matting and sentiment. Both of these cards are for my latest box of 50 cards to head off to the Animal Health Trust at Newmarket, I have been donating cards to their Visitors Centre to help raise funds for some time now, I've lost count of how many but it's well into three figures and they tell me they sell well.
Hope you all have a good Monday and thanks for popping in, your visits and comments are always much appreciated.
