Kittens by L. Wain & Halloween Treat Cone

Working with the famous Louis Wain Kittens

Today I am showing you these unique and vitage kitten cards by my fried Kitty , visit her blog for all the complete information about these stunning cards.

I received the lovely set of Christmas Kittens by Louis Wain from the amazing Ignacio at Nicecrane Designs and I couldn't wait to get started! I have been admiring his vintage cats and kittens for quite awhile and I was so happy to finally play with them. I actually made three cards from this set and I will share the other two cards later this week, but here is the first one. Although this set is called Christmas Kittens, I think the images are wonderful for any time of year.

I am back with the second of my three Vintage Kittens cards that I made with the set of Christmas Kittens by Louis Wain from Ignacio at Nicecrane Designs. This one is called Kitty's Tea Party and it's my favourite of the set! I really had fun adding all kinds of bits and bobs to create a vintage look.

Here is the third in my series of three Vintage Kittens cards I made with the set of Christmas Kittens by Louis Wain that I received from Ignacio at Nicecrane Designs. This one is Little Miss Muffet - so cute! Although the set is called Christmas Kittens, they are wonderful for all year round. I really had a lot of fun with this set and I'm hoping to make some more vintage cards in the future. It's a style I haven't made very often but I really enjoy it.

Flower Fairies, Reading Kids & FREEBIE


I love Vintage Fairies Illustrations,,, so when I was watching these ones,,,,,I was sure to design a new collage sheet for you called "Colorful Flower Fairies", I asked to my friend Brenda at my DT ,,,,,,to work on it,,,,,,,so here is her incredible work:
For my card.................which has been beautifully enhanced by Ignacio, thank you...............I have gone with the girly element and used one of the pretty new Colourful Flower Fairiesfrom Nicecrane, Graphic 45 DP's, lace and ribbons. I really like the floral dress on this fairy and made three Peruvian Lilies to match using Ruth's Tonic Punch and Stamp set, shading the flowers with a little Pan Pastel and some ribbon which I curled to echo those in the fairies hands.

So amazing and fascinating Fairy Card by Brenda

Back to School (Coloring Tuorial?

I asked to Toni Johnson in my DT to woork with my cute sheet called "Reading Kids",,,,so directly from her blog: For some kids it takes them a while to get back into the swing of school and homework after the six week Summer break. So why not give them a hand with a journal that they can note down their homework assignments or their reading lists.

Over at Nicecrane Designs, Ignacio has some fabulous new images and amongst them are these...

...aren't they adorable. You can find "Reading Kids" here.

So with 'back to school' in mind, I had a play with some of these images to see what they looked like.
Colouring onto smooth white CS with alcohol pens gives quite a vibrant effect...

...the colours just pop off the page. However, just look at the difference on kraft card...

Here you can watch my Library Card with thic unique illustration

Vintage Library Card by Nicecrane Designs

...I used exactly the same range of colours but see how different the image looks. Much softer and the colours seem more muted. Here again, change of image but this little chap is coloured on kraft card...

...quite a soft, worn look. Whereas, this next little chap...

...looks so much brighter on a white CS background. Both images were coloured with exactly the same pen shades but you would be forgiven if you thought otherwise.

This is something that you should keep in mind when colouring. The colour of your background will have a big effect on how your colouring turns out and this is one of the reasons that I print a blank colour chart onto the CS that I normally use so that it gives me a good idea how a shade will look.

I am falling in lovw with this colored illustration by Toni Johnson,,,,so here is a new Library Card but this time with a colorful finished result,,,,,,,

Colored Vintage Library Card by Nicecrane Designs

For the journal, I used an A5 hardback note book and covered it with a sheet of PP from the DoCrafts Sew Lovely paper stack...

...I thought the paper covered with ruler images was just right. Rather than cut into two sheets of 12x12, I cut one sheet down the middle and covered from the open edge of each cover.
This left the spine of the book bare so I used some abstract washi tape (made by Scotch)...

...the washi tape gives a more flexible spine than paper. The image was die-cut using the largest of my Spellbinder scalloped ovals and I 'scruffy' inked around the edge - don't be afraid of lines and patches when inking, sometimes they can be just the effect that works.
