Conie Fong Alanna Digital Stamp - You Are So Lovely

 If you must look back, do so forgivingly.  If you must look forward, do so prayerfully.  However, the wisest thing you can do is be present in the present...gratefully.   Maya Angelou

Hey there from Nannyland,

I often find myself reaching for Conie Fong images when I want to color something really soft and pretty.  This lovely image called  Alanna was such a joy to color in pastel shades of pink and aqua.  Conie creates the most luxurious tresses on her beautiful ladies, which makes them super fun to color.   

I've had this printed cardstock in my stash for ages, thinking its heavy weight would make a great card base. There are several different floral prints and the color palette on this one matched my image perfectly.  The black frame is a Heartfelt Creations 5 x 7 die cut embellished with pale pink pearls.  I fussy cut my image and attached her to a hand cut dp oval that fits the center of my frame.  After attaching my image with wet glue, I edged the panel with a gold leafing pen and adhered it to my frame with mounting tape.  I created the sentiment in Cricut Design Space with the cutting and writing features. 

I'm always looking for new card designs to spotlight my colored portraits, but my favorite standby is just a simple beautiful frame that makes my image the star.  I've noticed many of my favorite card makers have their own individual styles that define their masterpieces.  It makes their artwork recognizable and special.  I hope I have inspired you to discover your signature recipe to compliment your one-if-a-kind creations.  

Thanks for visiting Nannyland.
I'll just be here blissfully creating until your next visit.
