My Very First Card With A Scene

 

Little did I know how much was involved making a Round Easel Card plus adding a scene.  Once I began making it I wanted to quit because I thought I bit off more than I could chew.  But you know me (maybe you don’t) but I am a very persistent type person and thought just keep making the card and see what happens.  Well it did take me a while to make it because of time so I could only work on it here and there.  I finally finished it last night.  How about taking a look at it and let me know what you think.  And for those that have done cards with a scene I sure would appreciate your input on what  you would do differently.  All tips are welcome.

Camping Scene Card_Water Close-up

This is the bottom portion of the card showing the water, sand and wooded area. I was very, very limited with camping elements so I went online and found some cartoonish pictures and used them as my elements.  With a little help from Paint Shop Pro (coloring & re-sizing).  I think they look pretty good.

Camping Scene Card_Bears Closeup

You can see that this card will be for a man or boy.  It can be used for Father’s Day or a Birthday. The image (Bears and Trees) is a Digi Image from My Time Made Easy (MTME). You can see more about the  image here.   (Click on photo to view larger).

I really had fun coloring the image using Prisma Color Pencils and the Gamsol technique.  Don’t Papa Beat and the Little Guy look happy?  Do you think its because they caught all those fish or just having a great time together.?  I think its both.  And I bet Mamma Bear is enjoying the peace and quiet and not having to cook.
