First easel card and masking...

Hello! I hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend! Rainy day in France, too bad for tennis fans... My card today is my very first easel card and it is also the first time that I have masked an image (and I found it a bit difficult with RUBBER stamps, so I had to try several times to have my character sitting on the fence and not sitting... in the sky :-)!

I am going to enter it into several challenges:
Colour Create - Challenge 45 - Soft green and light aqua (the optional extra is butterflies)
Anya Ink - Challenge 1 - Easel card
Anyone for Anya -Double Trouble (use 2 images)
Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 32 - Wings
Simon Says Stamp - Pink or blue with green and brown

Here is the front part of my card.

Copics: Skin and hair: E000, E00, E27, E29, E31, R20 - Clothes: B00, B02, B91, B93, B95, B97, BG000, G000, G00, G02, YG11 - Fence: E33, E35, E37, E47 - Grass and flowers: BG000, Y00, Y11, YG03, YG11, YG13, YG17, YG63, YG67
Stamps: CC Designs (Field Fence, Lederhosen Hansel, butterflies and sentiment)
DP: Doodlebug
Tools and other: MS doily lace punch, ink blending tool, blue chalk, Star dust Stickles, gems and ribbon

And here is the whole easel card...

I have chosen to keep my card quite simple because I wanted the image and butterflies to be the focus of the card.
Thank you all for visiting my blog and for all your lovely comments! I really appreciate :-)!
Have a great weekend and talk to you soon!
