Sugar Nellie - Picket Post Lane

- Hello Sugar Fans -
Well hello and good morning to you all. It's Thursday and it's Sugar Nellie time!
I thought for this week I'd use another one of our new 'Furry Friends' digi stamp because I just think they're soooo cute.  This beautiful stamp is called 'Picket Post Lane' and it's available from Funkykits in digital format.

Here's What I Did
I really just wanted to play with this gorgeous digi stamp. So I decided to print out a large copy of it onto watercolour card, and colour it with distressing pens and inks.  I decided to frame it for my daughter's bedroom - so I bought a 8" x 10" inexpensive frame from a local discount store. I did cut out my own mount to go inside the frame using white cardstock and my Silhouette, but if you wanted to create something similar you can buy pre-cut mounts quite cheaply. I used a few pencils to added more depth to the picture. To finish off I added a little glitter to the parcels and envelope.

This was such a simple project to do and the image looks great in a frame, as will all the Sugar Nellie stamps. 
Here's What I Used
