One image three ways

The image I have used for these three cards is not a stamp. I guess you could call it a digi stamp. You can sign up to receive a weekly e-mail from Dover Publications and they have free sample images from their books that you can save and print. I have been saving images for a few years now. I didn't know what I was saving them for but at least they were not cluttering up my art room....just my computer! LOL.

I re-sized the image and printed it on white cardstock. I then traced the image twice onto vellum but more about that later. I colored the image with pencils then cut a rectangle leaving some of the image outside the box. I then cut a black rectangle and mounted the image onto that. I used Nesties Labels 1 and the Cuttlebug to cut and emboss a frame from white cardstock.

The first image I traced onto vellum I colored with pencils and mounted it on white with pop dots although you can't tell by the picture. I cut the yellow frame using oval and scalloped oval Nesties. I used Cuttlebug swiss dots and thanks folders.

For this card I used an embossing tool on the vellum. I used a Nestie square to cut out a window in the turquoise CS and a smaller one to cut a window from black CS. I mounted the vellum on the piece cut out from the turquoise. The embossing on the bottom is a cuttlebug folder and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Mixed Messages.
