Here is just one photo which I think shows the magic of how London weaves together the old with the new. I took it from the Royal Observatory in Greenwich Park looking down to the banks of the River Thames. It show the architecture of Sir Christopher Wren's Old Royal Naval college in the foreground with the modern buildings of Canary Wharf. An amazing view.
The main reason for my post today is that I am super excited today to be able to offer a Freebie from my friend Ignacio, of Nicecrane Designs to all my followers. Ignacio and I met through my interest in his Kewpie images. I was delighted to be invited to join his Design Team, as a permanent Guest Designer, last year. These images are so sweet and are also a favourite of my Mum, who remembers them from her childhood. I have used several of them on various projects.
Ignacio has brought out a new range of Kewpies, just in time for Valentine's Day. This is the sheet he has created and it is available either pre coloured or as black lined images for colouring. They are available in his store to purchase here
He knows that I am a girl who loves to colour so I made my Guest Designer card for him using the black lined version which I coloured with my Promarkers and highlighted with Prismacolor Pencils.
And here is a close up of the sweet image.
I used the Docrafts pad and sentiments I won recently in Rhedd and Rosie's challenge (thank you ladies). I used Pumice Stone Distress Ink on the edges. I also treatment myself to a new die set after some recent Etsy sales. The die is by Cheery Lynn and is called the Heart to heart lace Doily set. There are 4 dies in the set, I have just used the middle one. I can see me using these so much.
I have listed this card in my Etsy shop you can find the link here.
