Mo's Digital Challenge #35 - Easel Card

This week over at Mo's Digital Challenge, our amazingly talented hostess, Sheila has challenged us to make an Easel card.  I love these, you can create any size or shape you want.

Using Mo's image, My Friend, I sized it to fit my Spellbinders Label 12 die and then printed it onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Fence - E41, E42
Girl - E000, E00
Hair - YR21
Sweater and socks - RV000, RV00, RV02
Skirt - G0000, G000
Shoes - G02, G000
Puppy - Y32
Vine - YG93
Daffodils - Y32, Y21, G40
Ground - G40, E51

I airbrushed B01 around the image before removing it from the Label 12 die.  To create the card, I started with a piece of card stock 4.25 x 11 inches.  I scored it at 2.75 and 5.5 inches and fold them both towards the center.  This creates the base.  Next I cut a piece of matching card stock 4.25 x 5.5 inches and that is the part that stands up with the image on it.  I attached my separate piece to the folded down part of the base and the card was formed.  This fabulous paper is from the 6x6 Basic Grey Capella collection.  I tried to match the soft muted tones in my Copic coloring.  I added some Shimmerz to the flower for some added bling.

I computer generated the saying "Just Peeking In..." and on the inside it says "To wish you a wonderful day"   Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches, it will lay flat to slide into an A2 envelope. 

Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team and has come up with. I hope I have inspired you to give digi images a try.
