Have you ever wondered...

what Lily's room looks like? And do you wonder what she's doing in her room today? She's painting a picture of her favorite little guy, Billy!

After playing with all of my Billy stamps from Pink Cat Studio this last month, Lily was starting to get a little lonely.

I got this idea in my head last night while I was trying to sleep and had to get it on paper as soon as I woke up this morning. Don't you just love it when the vision you have in your head actually makes it on to the paper?!

I had fun making this card, but wasn't quite sure how to go about it because I've never done a card with a "scene" before. The wallpaper is a scrap of paper that I had left over from a class I taught at Easter time. I used my Scor-pal and scored the patterned paper every half inch to add a little texture.

For the easel, I just cut a long strip of Chocolate Chip cardstock, folded it and added some gold brads. Then I took another piece of Chocolate Chip cut to a small rectangle and scored it at 1/8" and 1/4". I folded it over and that became the tray on the front to hold the painting. Since this easel belongs to Lily, I thought it only fitting to have a gold embossed crown on top.

Lily was colored in with my Copics and for the painting, I took a scrap of white Bazzill bling paper and used my SU markers and an aquapainter to watercolor Billy. Here's a close up.

Such a fun card to make! Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by.
