Kittens, Milly Mooly Mandy and Nina Brisley Cards

Do you love kittens?

I asked to Marion to work with my new cute "Vintage funny Kittens" and here is her sweet work :Today I want to share another cute heart box with you all, it is made with a Whiff of Joy die. I used the lovely kitty images from Nicecrane Designs. They come in a five pack and they are all soooo adorable

So adorable Heart Box by Marion

I used an older line from MME for this project. I added a key charm and a doorhanger die from Whiff of Joy to give it an extra touch.

Adorable Vintage Playing Kids Postcards
by Nina K., Brisley

Joyce Lankester Brisley was an English writer. She is most noted for her Milly-Molly-Mandy series, which were first printed in 1925 by the Christian Science Monitor. She both wrote and illustrated her books. Joyce Lankester Brisley had two sisters who were also illustrators: Nina.K.Brisley, and Ethel C Brisley. All three sisters illustrated postcards for Alfred Vivian Mansell, with Nina and Ethel becoming quite prolific.

 I am telling you about Nina `s  famous sister , she is Joyce :think the earliest I remember was the “Milly Molly Mandy” series by Joyce Lancaster Brisley. These were written in the late 1920′s and Milly was a bit of a tomboy just like me so I related to her. The stories are now over eighty years old and reflect that era.  Milly loved to catch tadpoles and make mud pies and was always busily doing things and helping others.  She was also polite and respectful – a good girl – and I loved her.

You can`t miss the ABSOLUTELY STUNNING COLORING TECHNIQUE BY TONI JOHNSON Ignacio sent me a fabulous collection of digi-stamp images to colour and one that immediately took my eye was from one of his new Nicecrane Design images sheets - "Playing Kids by N.Brisley DSL".

How could anyone not fall in love with this cutie... sooner had I printed the image, than I was merrily colouring it in... usual, I started with the basic flesh tone but I so wanted to try colouring the sea...

...this was a first for me and I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out. Dipping into the Spectrum Noir Blue Turquoise (BT) lighter shades, the Green Turquoise (GT) and a touch of the mid-range Jade Green (JG), I have to say that I was rather pleased at the way it came together.I really do love to use 'ginger' hair colour...

...I thought it looked so alive and fun.
Then of course the puppy needed a bit of colour...

...what a sweet paddling companion.

I have to say that once the image was coloured, I sort of ground to a halt as I didn't want to cut the image out as a rectangle but I didn't have any dies of a suitable size. I do not own any of the larger sets of dies because I have a Big Shot cutting machine and the maximum width that it will take is just about 6". A trip over to Barleylands and a chat to Andy in Pinnacle Crafts resulted in the discovery that some of the larger oval dies will go through my machine... oval it was - plain for the image and scalloped for the matt...

...I decided on an aqua coloured matt so that it would stand out from the sandy colour of the kraft CS, jute and hessian.DoCrafts have some "Scrabble" letters in their Papermania "Bare" range...

...there are a good number of tiles in the pack for the price but I did find the variety of letters a little limited.
The jute tape is also from the Bare range and the open weave hessian was from my stash...

...the wooden shells were the only seaside type embellishments that I could find but I think they work well.
I love this image as it gives the impression of carefree Summer days...

...certainly something that we all need to look forward to. 
If you would like to have a go at colouring this cutie...

Thanks to Marion,,and especially to Toni for this gorgeus Coloring Tutorial,,,,
