Makin' a scene with SCACD's Fairy Queen!

The one thing that I really love about digital stamps is that you can resize them and flip 'em. Oops. That's two things. You can also easily create scenes with them, which I guess is a third thing.

Anyway, that's exactly what I've done here. Using PhotoElements, I've resized SCACD's Fairy Queen, Gryphon, and Teeny Tiny Blue Jay digital stamps and placed them into a scene. I also flipped one of the two Blue Jays!

I printed out the scene onto Neenah cardstock using a laser printer, then colored it using Copic markers which I'll list below. When the images were colored, I drew in the stone wall using Copic markers. Some clouds were die-cut from Eclipse paper, placed onto the scene, traced with a C00 Copic marker. This process was repeated until I had a nice cloudy sky. The blue sky was filled in and the clouds were shaded, also using my Copics.

The sentiment was created by using two words from Ideology Chit Chat Word stickers. Lines were drawn in using a Copic Multi-liner.

The patterned paper is from the Natural 6x6 pad by Authentique and was edged with a Gold Spica Glitter pen. The card was finished with two filigree gold metallic corners cut with a SCACD Classic Corners Die and a gold metallic chain cut with Memory Box Delicate Chain die.
