Mo Manning Card Series: #2 - June

This is the 2nd card in my series from a set of six.  
I am posting one card a month - this is for June.
"Birthday Fairy Lee" can be purchased at Mo's Digital Pencil 
Background for the series:
This is one of a set of cards created for a charity event.  My concept was to use Paper Tole or Paper Sculpting on each one working only with Mo Manning's images.  This is the entire set -
To bring some continuity to the "set" I used 4 basic elements with each card:
  • The base card and envelope are all Kraft CS
  • All the images are Mo's - creating a consistency in style.
  • All six use an identical sized background paper with the bottom one inch hand torn and adhered with a gap.
  • Each will have an elevation to the image by using an average of three sculpted layers for each image.

  • "Birthday Fairy Lee" is by Mo Manning at Mo's Digital Pencil
  • For the focal image, I used Paper Tole Technique to 3D the image. Printed 3 copies, colored them with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted' the image.  The layers were both glued & elevated with foam tape to achieve dimension.
  • Sentiment is unknown[?]
  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • Background papers consist of a white CS embossed with vines and leaves and the bottom inch torn off and placed at the bottom to create the gap.
  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer. 
  • Hand colored with Copics.
