Nicecrane Design "Little Maids" Series

Little Maid Series

Another card using Nicecrane Designs digi and papers.  I just can't get enough of these incredible designs.

I colored the girls and fence with Copics, but sponge painted the rest of it with Tim Holtz's distress ink in "broken china", for the sky, and "spiced marmalade", "peeled paint", and "fired brick" for the trees, and "burlap" and "tea dye" for the outer edges.   The paper is from the "Mystique Nature" line. I added the metal pieces to the corners.

 I really like the way this came out.  Probably one of my favorites.   It's the same back ground paper that's on the inside. 
Here's a close up of the sponge painting.

And here's a close up of the inside.  The saying was suppose to be on the bottom of the digi, but I had Ignacio send it as a separate file, so that I could print it out on matching paper for the inside of the card.  It's not quite centered, but it took me alot of printing to get it this way.  I used scissors to get the edges a little distressed. (I really need a distressing tool).
