Nicecrane Design Sponsor Spotlight #2

Hello everyone and lovely to have you visiting here at Our Creative Corner.
Today I am sharing the second project for our sponsor spotlight.
As you may know already Nicecrane Design is our wonderful sponsor this month.

Anyone who joins in this month's challenge, Just three Colours could be randomly picked to win a $20 voucher for Nicecrane Design Collage sheets. If you don't know him, check him out! He supplies the most amazing collection of digital images, - there is bound to be something for every taste, there is so much to choose from, you will not be disappointed!!


I chose to work with this amazing collection of digital stamps and had so much fun colouring my chosen image!
New and True

Digi stamps don't only save lots of space of course, but the great thing is that you can re-size them to fit your project.
Here is a close up of the stamp I chose. I coloured it with some Faber Castell Big Brush markers, which I had scribbled on my craft mat and then picked up with a refillable water brush

I created a large 9 by 7" card, which eventually will become the cover of a journal. I used a wonderful vintage paper collection from Kaisercraft's Sweet Nothings" collection and over-stamped in various areas with some background stamps, also from Kaisercraft.
I heavily distressed all the edges of my paper, then stitched around it and adhered it to a cream coloured card base.
It was embellished with various die cuts, flowers and a rusty heart.
I also added some lace for a vintage feel to match the lovely vintage stamp.
A sentiment from the Tim Holtz Simple Sayings set and some pearl brads finishes it all off.

Well, hope you liked my sponsor spotlight. Laura will show you another amazing project on the 25th. Don't forget to come back for that.
Thank you for visiting today, and if you have not done so already, we all hope you will join us still for our February challenge, and remember, one randomly chosen winner could be the lucky recipient of their favourite Nicecrane collage sheets!
Have a wonderful day and stay inky!!
