Welcome back to the final Sponsor 'Spotlight' for this month.
Nicecrane Designs has been our sponsor this month and for the winner of the prize draw this month there will be a $20 voucher to spend on some gorgeous digi images at the Nicecrane store!
For my creation I chose to work with the Bessie Gutmann images - They are so gorgeous!
In this collection you get two sets of the images - coloured and line drawing images. I chose to work with the line drawing.
I was inspired by our Guest Designer last month. Trace from inkypinkycraft who had used some burlap panels. I was very keen to do something similar. I didn't have any of the actual panels so I made my own with mount board, painted with Frayed Burlap DP and covered with burlap sheets.
After the burlap was stuck down I began to decorate the panel.
The picture of the little girl on the swing was painted with Picket Fence DP to act as a resist for the ink. The Distress paint isn't very opaque, so it is great to use for this...just a light brush of paint and you can still the detail underneath.
When dry I blended Frayed Burlap DI over the image and then cut it out and stuck it onto ivory card.
I stuck it to the panel and began to decorate it with some tissue tape
I added an ivory rose that had been dabbed with Frayed Burlap DI. I stuck some delicate crochet lace and a rustic button alongside the rose.
I added a twine bow
When dry I peeled the letters away from the card and inked the card with Walnut Stain and Frayed Burlap DI.
I tore around the edge of the words. I would normally have inked the torn edge, but I decided to leave it un-inked to add some contrast.
So where did the other words go?.....well, this one is part of a set of three.....
I mixed up the words so none matched and used a different image and tissue tape on each. They all have roses dabbed with frayed Burlap DI, twine string tied into bows and some natural coloured buttons.
I loved making these panels - I do hope that you have enjoyed visiting our Sponsor Spotlights this month. It has been lots of fun showing you just a few of the many ways these gorgeous images from Nicecrane Designs can be used in your own creations!
