Zoe Gazing at the Butterfly

We are having lots more rain so it is another good day to stay indoors.  They are expecting flooding in a lot of areas near us.  It just doesn't seem like we are ever going to have nice weather.

When I was out at Joan's Gardens I couldn't resist purchasing some more Stampavie stamps. She has all the new Sarah Kay stamps in stock.   The one on the card above is called Sarah Kay's  "Zoe Gazing at the Butterfly".  Isn't she cute!   I decided to create a scene for her.  I have a brass stencil by Lynell Harlow that I have had for years.  I decided to try and create a stone wall behind Zoe with it.  First I stamped the image then placed it on a light box over the stencil.  It was easy to be able to do the dry embossing around the stamped image.  I used sponge daubers to add colors (brown, gray and white) to the wall.  How do you think it turned out?

The image was colored using a combination of Copic markers, Koh-i-noor pencils and oms, and colored pencils without oms.  For the grass I used stamps from Kitty Caracciolo's "Cause A Scene" stamp set.   Kitty has great stamp sets for creating scenes.  Next to the wall I stamped some longer grass and added some tiny punched daisies to match the flowers in the basket.  I love the butterfly on Zoe's toe and punched some additional butterflies to add to the scene.  The Martha Stewart "Floral Lace" edger punch was used for the border across the center of the card.

The designer paper is from the Basic Grey "Green at Heart" paper pad.  It is so perfect with this card.  The verse is from the new JustRite "Birthday Sentiments" set.  This is a perfect set for birthday greetings.  It comes with nine sentiments and is used with the new clear circle stamper. 

Have you created scenes for some of your stamped images?  It is so much fun.

Hope you are having a nice sunny day.  Thanks for stopping by.
