Scenic Saturday with Amybella: Love Potion Oddball Scene

Hello friends!

Amy here with the first Scenic Saturday card of the new year and since it is the fourteenth I figured why not jump ahead and make a Valentine’s Day card. The ODDBALLS, with their deadpan expressions and slightly edgy attitudes were calling to me and I finally settled on this fabulous LOVE POTION ODDBALL to build a scene around.

First, I stamped her onto the lower left corner of the card front using Memento tuxedo black ink and then added the sentiment that comes with her to the upper right corner. The lyrics from the old Love Potion Number 9 song kept running through my head and I imagined Madame Ruth’s potion room as rather dark and mysterious so I grabbed my Copic markers and colored a frame around the sentiment that it wouldn’t get lost on a dark wall. To embellish the rest of the room I borrowed elements from a couple other stamps in my Stamping Bella stash. First was the crystal ball that is part of the CRYSTAL BALL BUNDLE GIRL stamp. I just wiped the ink off of the Bundle Girl’s hand before stamping, then drew the missing line back in using a Copic multi liner black pen. Next I added some of the smaller bottles from the CURVY GIRL LOVES ESSENTIAL OILS stamp to the shelf I colored onto the wall. Because masking all of these little things into place would have been hard and time consuming, I opted to stamp them all on scratch pieces of card stock, fussy cut and then glue them on at the end. You’ll notice there are eight bottles on the shelf, as I figured it would be funny to see Love Potions one through eight back there. So, while this may not be your typical lovey dovey Valentine, it’s sure to make the right recipient feel the love, LOL!  😉    

Stay crafty!
