I have been having a lot of fun working with the new "Vintage Photo Images" from Crafts and Me. Teresa has them available in BOTH rubber and digi format. The last three cards I created featured the digi images. Again, I printed my image out on the new Stamping Linen that Teresa will have in stock soon. It feeds into my inkjet printer just like paper and voila! The backing on the linen allows it to be cut right on my paper cutter- no special scissors needed. Of course, these images can be sized, flipped and even colorized differently in photo editing software. I love them just the way they are- easy when you want to make a vintage or shabby chic card in a hurry- just print on paper or linen and embellish away!For my card, I selected "Rose". I just love the deep green in her dress and part of the background mirror. I added a bit of Stickles to her hairband and a few roses. I just love the frame behind her... all part of the image! Looks layered, doesn't it? That is the high quality of the photo image.
Pion "Lily of the Valley" from the Fairytale of Spring Collection. The pearls on a wire and bronze corner are from Live and Love Crafts. Lace and velvet ribbon are from The Ribbon Girls. The flower "cameo" is from Recollections... I could not believe how perfectly it matched the roses in the image. Flowers are from WOC and Recollections.
Here is a close up:
And I could not end without thanking Carla for introducing me to Create with TLC... I just love their digi sentiments. I am also a fan of angels and fairies and this image reminded me of an angel looking down over me. How wonderful to find a sentiment to match what I hope to convey. This sentiment comes from the Art Fire "Guardian Angel Set" - a collection of five separate sentiments. All edges of paper and sentiment distressed with Brushed Courduroy distress ink.
