Full Card:

Detail Images:

   Close-up of Stencil/Embossed area with LSG Sprays:

   Close-up of Toby - I wanted him to look / feel more textured, so I used crazing medium:

    Close-up of flowers/butterfly/mushroom with the use of ultrafine glitter and Glossy Accents:

I printed the digital image onto PRISM white cardstock, and colored it with Copic Markers (see below).  I used colors to match the MME Stella & Rose papers that I selected for the background. I printed another image and colored the flowers & butterfly and fussy-cut them for accents.   I wanted more texture on the butterflies, mushroom and flowers, so I added Glossy Accents and ultra-fine glitter to them.  For Toby, I used colorless blender and a cloth to create some dimension, but decided that I wanted a bit more, so I painted the Distress Collage Crazing medium over him, then added Glossy Accents to his nose and eyes.  I used a die to cut the word "hi" into the panel, then backed it with black card-stock.  I machine stitched the image panel to the first patterned layer, then added the accent flowers and butterfly with foam dots.  I backed this layer with another patterned paper layer and distressed the edges with my Prima distress tool.  I have this Dylusions stencil that has flowers similar to the ones in the digital stamp, so I used the stencil and some modeling paste, colored with Rusty Hinge Distress Stain, to add some texture to the base layer of the card.  Then I sprayed the area with Lindy's Stamp Gang spray to add some additional color and shimmer, and distress the edges.  I used a Copic Marker to edge my card base, attached the embossed panel, then added the image panels with foam dots.  To finish, I colored a bit of Crinkle Ribbon with my Copic marker and attached it under the accent flowers.
