Make New Friends

By Olga - 9:00 AM

When I was a child I was active in Brownies and Girl Scouts. We sang a song that I have never forgotten, you probably know it too. "Make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other's gold."  Well my card for the first day of June shows our sweet Miss Lilly doing just that, "making new friends" with Toby the lizard
This is my absolute favorite digi image that Olga has designed, I love how beautiful Lilly looks laying on the ground surrounded by lovely flowers.  I colored the image with Copic sketch markers and then fussy cut it out adhering it to My Mind's Eye "Meadow" paper. I used two Amy Tangerine clouds tucking one just under a wood veneer sun. The wood veneer is colored by blending Mr. Huey's color mist in Sherbet and Taxi, I then added gold stickles to the rays to give it some extra sparkle. I also added stickles to the centers of the flowers as well.  The sentiment is an Amy Tangerine fabric sticker from American Crafts.

 One tip to make an image appear more realistic is to outline it with Copic markers in gray tones. Here I used C1 and C3 which gives depth by adding a shadow effect to the image. I do this after I adhered the image to the background paper.  I outlined the bottom of the clouds too. June is a new month and a new beginning so why don't we follow Lilly's lead and look for adventure in the sunshine, you never know who you might meet!
