Twist of Faith #43 - Make a Scene

This week at Twist of Faith our new challenge is:

SCENES - a scenic card or scenic image

And of course, don't forget our purpose - to include a scripture, uplifting quote/sentiment, or positive words of encouragement

We have a great sponsor this week: 

StampArt Design by Kathryne! The SADK random prize winner will receive their choice of FIVE IMAGES from the SADK collection available at Whimsy Stamps 

I used one of Kathryne's new stamps, "Charlie," because he looks like two of my grandsons who love fishing.

After I colored the delightful image with Copic markers, I wanted to try something new. To make my card even more scenic, I drew a grassy area beside Charlie and tore the top edge along the grasses. I cut out Charlie and the dragonfly with scissors. I adhered the sides and bottom edges as usual, but pop dotted the middle area around Charlie for added dimension and placed him on a background of blue sky and brown branches.
This scene reminds me of the peaceful place near my home where I used to fish when I was 12. That influenced my choice of a verse I had saved from Word Art Wednesday on August 1, 2012. I used Photoshop to print only the first half of the verse. I used brown hemp and CTMH antique copper bitty brads to help set it off. All of the pieces were sponged with CTMH Brown Bag ink.
I hope you'll join our challenge with your own scenic card and verse or sentiment.  I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
Dream Valley #59 - (Father's Day)/ Male theme
Eureka Stamps #45 - Summertime Fun
Fab 'n' Funky #176 - Animals (Charlie's frog friend and dragonfly)
Joanna Sheen Challenge - Father's Day or a Male Card
Lady Anne's Challenge #3 - The Great Outdoors
Mema's Crafts June Challenge - anything goes with Summer Vacation twist
Stamp and Create - Summer Fun 
Word Art Wednesday #85 - anything goes with a scripture or words of encouragement
