Two on Tuesday from Digital Two for Tuesday

The main images on both of these cards came from the Digital Two for Tuesday blog – vintage images from old magazines and books (copyright expired), cleaned up, scanned and generously shared by the blog author.

Both are colored with Copic markers.  The first has some complementary stamping – Climbing Leaves background from Cornish Heritage Farms, and Linen background from Stampin’ Up!   The bird in flight holding an envelope is an old Inque Boutique stamp, and the sentiment is Hero Arts.

The next card is bright, but he’s such a happy fellow I didn’t want to dampen his spirit with a dull background.  The papers are My Mind’s Eye Out of the Blue.

I hope you enjoy.  Love to you, and have a wonderful day!

  1. Both are awesome. I subscribe to that web site too (after reading about it on your blog) and have saved several images. Your first card is so pretty - the viney layer is perfect. Your coloring is always so wonderful. Don't know how you colored the climbing vines so perfectly.

  23. Leslie, the card on top has such a peaceful scene, and I love that little bird delivering mail! I see you've used the Linen background, which is one I own and love and will never part with. It's a goodie. ;)

    The chipper bird on the second card is sweet, and you've given the sky such a soft subtleness. Don't know how you do it!

  25. I think that little bird in the jaunty cap is either crooning Michael Buble or Frank Sinatra!
