  • Mrs 3d's Valentine card

    Thanks to Vintageholidaycrafts.com for use of the image. About 12 hours, 9 layers, trawling various craft shops for the Broaderie and lacy stuff that all sort of looked right together, then the red ribbon and another trawl for the right sized peel off letters, then the image mounted on to acetate or poly whatever you call it. Had to enhance the colours by hand due to the image not being that sharp when printed but the added colours plus 4-5 coats of paper varnish did the trick. Thank God it only comes around once a year!

                Thanks for looking, I am especially pleased with this one because when I printed the images they were extremely flat colourwise so it was a case of will it work or not & time was running out so a fair bit of manual colouring was required. As for the lace it was a case of taking the images & trying pieces layered around the image until it looked right. (sorry Janet & Sandra's crafts, they dread me walking through the door). I have started raising the images on acetate sheet for a better finish. Last years card & other projects are in my album if anyone fancies a look.

                Many thanks gals.

                Dave.
