Reel-y great...

Good morning!

It's been too long since I've inked up a cutie from Dreamerland Crafts and this guy in particular has really been talking to me. The stamp is called, Let's Sing Together and in the original image the boy is carrying a scythe over his shoulder. Since I wasn't really feeling the scythe I decided to not ink up that part of the stamp, which gave me the opportunity to turn the stick into a fishing reel with very little effort. Now I had a solid direction for the scene I would create and that started with some help from the Farmland set. After masking the boy I stamped the fence behind him as well as the tiny trees off in the distance as well as the small patch of flowers at the end of the fence. I then proceeded to color in the pond on the other side of the fence with low, rolling hills beyond. Once everything had been colored in using my Copic markers I grabbed a black multi-liner pen and added some fishing line to the pole. The sentiment was borrowed from a Hello Bluebird set and that was all I needed to complete this sweet card.  :)

Alrighty, well thanks so much for stopping by today!
