Hi again ladies,,,,,,,,,,You know I love victorian picts,,,and all over these amazing and adorable vintage child......so I have designed a new Digi Stamp called "New & True" based on the same titled book from a vey ancient age......... I asked toFlorence to create some vintage cards and all over coloring these unique and adoralble picts,,,and .you can't miss her FASCINATING WORK:
ENJOY WATCHING THE STUNNING VIDEO.
All images have been coloured using inks from DIs and felt pens. Please click on any of the photos to enlarge. My first project for you today is one of my favourite images off this sheet. I have used the little boy image which I think looks like a young Lord Byron. I think I shall call him Lord William for now.

This card was inspired by Great Expectations and Pip. I was thinking about Miss Havisham being locked away in her house.This is the second card using the “Lord William” image. This time I resized him and made him slightly smaller.
Just a little close up. This young man has a beautiful face. It wasn’t until after I had photographed these that I thought maybe a fob watch would have worked nicely as an embellishment.
I really think you can go both ways with this image, either vintage or steampunk. I would really like to know what you guys think.
For my next card I used this sweet image of a nursing mother. This image would be great for Mothers Day, New Baby, First Birthday, Christening invites…. oh, endless uses.
A little close up
The colour choices made for this card were really to do with the pretty papers I wanted to use. After I had made it I did think pastels would have been pretty.
For the next two cards I used the same image. One printed in black outline and one printed in brown. Just experimenting really! lol!
For this card I chose these colours because I wanted to see what it would look like as a sort of vintage Christmas Card. I think it could pass.
I used some dies to make the rose flourish and popped a wooden button in the centre
Just a little close up photo. I love the detail on this, especially the little bird. The butterfly is made from a silcon stamp out of my own stash.
I used the same image again on the next card but just changed the colours.
I used dies to make the swirl and flower flourish. Again the butterlies have been made using a silicon stamp from my own stash.
Ok, for my next project, I am going to be honest with you. I have yet to learn how to resize the images exactly to fit the dies that I have in my stash. Anyway, I coloured this image in (which was an absolute delight to do so) and then thought ugh! So the only die I could find in my stash was an Arch die. I used it upside down to make a sort of pennant.
When I was making this I did think this could be used for Easter. Ok, bear with me…. The little basket and the lady’s Easter bonnet. Anyway, with that in mind I used pretty yellow spring flowers for my embellishments. One tip: I frayed the chunky cord at the ends so that it would lie flat when I attached it.
I have made this in paper and card but it could easily (as most things can be) be made with fabric or even wood using Taps paper for your images. Just a thought.
Catherine also was working with This sheet and you can watch her amazing work here:
I have been playing with the new set"New and True" the lovely Ignacio from NiceCrane has just put in his shop. They are illustrations from old books and they are really beautiful. I didn't want to ruin the image I wanted to put on my card with my colouring - lol - so I have just printed it in black on a vintage paper from Joy Crafts. Here is the card...
And here is the tag...
Recipe : Flowers and Leaves : Dies from Crealies - Heart : Die from Marianne Design - Hanging Heart : Die from Die-Namics - Sentiment from Cuddly Buddly.
I've coloured the picture with Copic Markers and for the edges of the picture and the black and white labels I've used two stamppads: black and brown. All together I've tryed to make a "vintage - sail themed - card".
Catherine also was working with my" Sweet Kids CS II"to create this charming and adorable card, and all over it remember me my Childhood,,,,wowww, thanks again Catherine:
Remembering My Childhood...
It's the theme of the challenge at Crafting By Designs and this image from NiceCrane was just perfect for me : when I was little I used to love playing with my dolls - I still remember their names ! My Mum taught me how to knit and I remember making little blankets for their beds ! Happy memories... Here is the card I have made...
Recipe : Papers : I have used scraps of papers left from a pad from Prima - Flowers : Die from Cottage Cutz - Leaves and centers of flowers : Dies from Crealies - Sentiment fromCuddly Buddly.
