The Good Life

Happy Monday to you from Jan's Digital Stamp Shop as we bring you June's Challenge filled with new inspirational card designs.  We sure hope you will join us with adding your cards to the monthly blog challenge for your chance to win!

For today, I've selected 'The Good Life' to share with you.  This package is filled with several images of this little fisher boy and his dog along with 4 different sentiments.  I've selected the image that has both the dog and the boy.

I enlarged this image to just  under 4" tall and printed it on Neenah 110# cardstock.  As always, I used Copic markers for coloring and they are referenced at the end of my blog for you.

I wanted to create a scene for the boy and his dog, but I'm just not an artist.  So I started by adding the grassy area around them and then added the edge of the pond.  From there I moved to the top of my card and colored in the sunrise, skyline, and worked downward adding the rays to the water area and allowing the two to merge together. It's far from perfect but it gave a good effect of land across the pond with the rise or setting sun.

After trimming the image close to the colored edge, I added the black liner mat and then secured it to the card base.  Lastly I added the sentiment from the same package which I had printed and die cute with a double fishtail die.

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I've been working on.  Be sure to pop over to Jan's Challenge Blog and add your cards along with seeing what the other Design Team ladies have waiting for you to see.
