Hi everyone. Back again! Wednesday's always seem to be so busy. My return is prompted by the need to post some cards made with stunning digital pictures from Nicecrane Designs. You know I'm obsessed with Italy/Venice at the moment. Well the owner of this fabulous digital image emporium, Ignacio, was an utter angel and sourced some vintage images of Venice. He has now put them into two sets for you to play and create with too (click on each image for the shop link).
The beauty of these is that they are detailed and clear enough that you can use parts of them if you want (as I have done in the cards below).
I loved the idea of using the paintings in polaroid frames - well paintings were the 18th Century versions of holiday photos for those on the 'Grand Tour' you know!!
You see what I mean about the clarity and detail of these images? And this is under a layer of clear EP too.
Piles of die cuts using textured CS and some of my own creation.
Oh happy days - it all coordinates beautifully with the Stampers Anonymous Classics #2 set.
The second card - slightly different colours used to work with the greener tones within the image but the design worked so I went with it.
And more close ups so you can see the detail.
The beauty of these images is they are (to use Son 1's expression) 'gender non-specific, so one of these is for a male and another for a female, but it would be rude to tell you who is the older:)
I really hope you like these images and consider using them for your projects too. Just thought - in case the picture links don't work I'll put them at the end of this too. Time to leave you in peace and let you enjoy the rest of Wednesday. Take care of yourselves, hugs Jenny xxx
