Wishing For Spring!

I don't know about you....but I am tired of Winter and these freezing temperatures! We have had -20 to -30 temperatures this past week and that's way too cold for me! When I made this card I was thinking of spring! I am using the adorable Ally Rose from High Hopes Stamps. I have her sitting on a fence from Magnolia Stamps (discontinued), but High Hopes also has a Farm Fence stamp that would work just as well! 

I stamped my image onto Copic friendly paper using Memento Tuxedo ink. To make Ally "sit" on the fence, I first stamped her image onto a piece of post it note paper and fussy cut around her. Then after stamping her onto the Copic paper I placed the post it note on top. I took the fence stamp, lined it up to where Ally's bottom would be  and stamped it over the post it note. Then when you remove the paper it looks like Ally Rose is sitting on the fence. This technique is called "masking". After colouring the image with my Copic Sketch markers, I cut her out in a circle. This card has lots of layers and die cut shapes. I used a small punch from the Dollar Store to punch out a few butterflies. Of course I added clear Wink of Stella to all parts pink and onto the tiny butterflies!
