A Make It Crafty Scene

     I guess this is more of a picture than a card although it's mounted as one.  I couldn't get the photo to show that the card base is actually a deep purple although it looks black.  Make It Colourful is primarily a coloring contest and by the time I finished creating the scene, there wasn't much room for extra frou frou's anyway.  So . . . it's pretty plain and simple--NOT!  LOL
     This is another entry for Zoe's challenges over at Make It Colourful.  I think this one fits a couple of the challenges, but I made it mainly for the "combine as many digi mages as possible" one.  There are six different digital stamp images merged together to make this scene, plus I used part of the fence and some of the rocks and plants from the bench image to finish the scene.  I've included a photo of the scene without the cute little Jane sitting on the bench so you can see the rest of the fence behind the bench.  She's popped up with pop dots.
     The entire scene is colored with Copics.  This was definitely a major project!  Merging photos in Photoshop is really easy, but doing that many and having to use the erase tool in all those little spots had my hand doing some major cramping.  I like the scene though.  I just wish I could have done it better justice with the coloring.  I'm not sure if I like the way I colored the ground or not, but I'm definitely not happy with her hair.  Hair is so hard for me.  I guess I'm going to have to print myself a bunch of heads and just practice.  LOL
     Mainly this was just a huge challenge to myself in a lot of areas and I can certainly use the practice.
     Thanks to all my friends for all the wonderful birthday wishes.  It has definitely been a kick back, relax and play day for me.  Just what I needed.
     Hugs to you all!
