Sitting Pretty - Make it Crafty Digital Scene with Copics

To sit in the shade on a fine day and look upon verdure
 is the most perfect refreshment.

Hey there,

Birthdays are always a delight at my bi-weekly craft group because we each make handmade cards for the birthday girl.  In October we have three birthdays, so the artistic creations abound. My cards this year are similar in concept but individually as different as my dear recipients. In each I created a little scene with the focal character sitting in a pretty outdoor setting. What fun it is to dress up a cute lady and create a scenario for her...just like playing with Barbie!  Look for the other two cards in future blogs.

Emily is a digi from Make it Crafty and is obviously on her lunch break as her fancy garb suggests.  She is  raised with pop dots and is sitting very politely on this park bench admiring the lovely greenery and flowers.  I die cut this park bench scene  in an oval shape to allow the white glitter lattice frame to show through from  behind.  I edged the oval with a gold leafing pen and matted the lattice frame with a gold metallic panel.  The card base is pale blue to mimic the sky.  The darling tiny die cut flowers are from Impression Obsession and are so versatile, especially for small scenes like this one.   The centers are dotted with yellow Nuvo Drops.  The tiny butterfly is also from Impression Obsession and embellished with a dot of aqua glitter glue.

I hope my birthday friend finds time to chill on her special day like this cute little girlie.

Thanks for visiting.
Go forth and enjoy the verdure,
