My Project!

I’m sure you’ve been enjoying all the amazing inspiration so far from the talented Whimsy gals & guy. 🙂

For my next card I thought I would have fun colouring up ‘Snowflake Fairy Princess‘ illustrated by Crissy.

As you may have noticed I’m going through the ‘less is more’ approach to card making and thus I had an idea to crop the little fairy before I began colouring to ‘frame’ her.

I love how it turned out and I am loving the wholeclean and simple approach. Plus is it much faster when making Chrismtas cards! hehe

I did however think the adorable little Winter Postage Stamps by Ann are perfect and decided I had to ink one up,
heat emboss it for a little texture and ass a little height with mounting foam.

Here’s the finished result!

And close up

I do love the effect of framing images by cropping them. You should give it a try too!

Can you find another way of looking at an image, just by cropping it?
