Scenic Saturday with Amybella: Tiny Townie Butterfly Girl Babette Scene

Hello bellas!

It’s Scenic Saturday with Amy and I just had to celebrate the official arrival of spring with a colorful fairy card this week. Tiny Townie Butterfly Girl Babette with her back turned and beautiful, sparkling wings on full display, got the wheels turning in my head for what kind of scene I wanted to create. Whenever I have a character stamp that is facing away from us I feel that the background they are looking at becomes even more important to the story you are telling. That is when I remembered the Tiny Townie Fairy Garden Fairy House set and I knew it would be the perfect destination for Babette to be walking towards.

To add extra interest I borrowed the mushrooms that come in the Tiny Townie Fairy Garden Fairy set and stamped them first so that when I masked them off and stamped Babette they would help push her into the mid-ground of the scene. I then masked Babette and stamped the Fairy House higher up and on the opposite side of the card so it would be pushed further into the background. Creating that sense of space between all of the elements is key to achieving a perspective where the various sized stamped elements all work cohesively together. Also notice that you don’t have to see every part of every stamp when creating a scene. By cutting off the very top of the house and losing some of Babette’s wing you still know exactly what it is you are looking at and it makes for a more dynamic over-all design by pulling you in and making it feel like you are walking down that fairy path right behind her in your very own fairy tale. 🙂 The sentiment is from the Spring Sentiment set.

Stay crafty my friends.

    I have this stamp but I didn’t put a background with it. I should do that! I love how the wings make you able to do anything with them like glitter, embellishments, etc. Great card!
