Nicecrane Valentines - again



Morning all you lovely crafty Peeps.

Popping in with a quick share of a couple of Valentine makes using Ignacio's Nicecrane Design sheets...................and both have been beautifully enhanced with his magical touch.  The top one is from the Amazing Children and the one below the Romantic Valentine 3 sheet, not sure if it's just me but the top image has a rather Shakespearean feel to it, I think it's the little boy and that hat.

Both are quite simple with Graphic 45 DP which I think compliments Ignacio's images perfectly, I made some roses for the top one and used some pretty new Spellbinder corners on the bottom which I rubbed with gilding wax.......thanks for the idea Jo.


You can find links to the Nicecrane design sheets and Graphic 45 DP's below.

See you all soon.

Your roses on that first one compliments the image & the design beautifully & I have to agree about the Shakespearean feel. It's my favourite of the two. The lace on the second provides such a lovely overhang for the image & those corners are rather special.

Hi Brenda, thanks so much for your recent visit. I keep seeing the gorgeous Nice Crane designs on blogs, and still haven't managed to get myself any yet. This one made such a gorgeous card, looks like one of the 'old Masters' that I'd see in a museum. Love the specific G45 you used to enhance this vintage graphic and haven't seen these papers in my area yet. Loving the heart border and that you made it an easel card to better enhance the Nice Crane design. This is simply wonderful. TFS & such marvelous inspiration. Hugs

Annmaree of Oz said...

Lovely romantic dreamy cards, Brenda. Those images are so pretty, and loving the flowers, diecuts and lace etc to add to the soft fluffy dreamy feel of the imagery and cards!

I hope you are doing well, and have a fantastic weekend!
