Thinking of You


Just a quick post, to let you know that Nicecrane Designs have some beautiful new image sheets available here.  I was lucky and got to use   'A Dream of Fair Women'                   .
I think this lovely lady is dreaming of her Beau and missing him, such a wistful expression on her face!
Crafting time has been in very short supply lately, and I have a few things that have either not been used or not used for a long time, one of which is the TH Cabinet die,  and I thought this would be perfect to frame this beauty.  I used a CB embossing folder on the frame and used Frayed Burlap to highlight the pattern.
To make this into a card, I cut a back, scored 1" down and attached at the top. While waiting for my 'dyed' muslin to dry, I put the card to one side - I have just purchased the TH Frameworks die and had cut a few ready to use - ready to complete the card, I noticed that I had put it down on the 'frame' and it reminded me of old Victorian photos on ornate stands - let me know what you think. (The card does stand by the way - not sure if you can tell by the photo)

I am entering this at

I hope that you all enjoy the rest of the weekend and hope the sun keeps shining.

A beautiful vintage image Avril. Love the TH frame die - it's a perfect shape for the image. The frameworks die is fabulous too - I thought it was a wooden stand until I read your post. Something else for my wish-list I think!!
Have a happy weekend - Sylvia x
