JIC DT: Around the World with SSD

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to show my little card... took me forever and a day to make it. LOL I had fun except for the stopping and stopping and stopping to do errands or whatever...

I originally wanted to do something else for the background but then I went to the site and I noticed the company is out on vacation or something... aaaaaah!!!! I had to draw my own background looking at various photographs trying to not copy but take elements into my imagination to make my own Egyptian Oasis.... After I drew my image I inked it manually then scanned it so I can print more in the future.

Here is my card I made for Team A's DT at Just Inspirational Challenges.
I used Bonnie of the Nile (Cleopatra) just click on the link and you'll find her there or just go to http://buysassystudiodesigns.blogspot.com/ and look around for yourself. ;)

My completed card.
The entire image was colored with Copic Markers and I use Copic Spica Atyou sparingly.

This image is also the inspiration photo for the JIC challenge this week. 

 Wrote my own sentiment like a vacation photo or vacation postcard. LOL 

I used a piece of left over Spectrum Noir paper, colored it and cut it like a wooden stick.

Here is the image of the Oasis I drew up. I colored it a little more at the bottom then trimmed after I decided where I was going to write my sentiment and glue my SSD girl. 

Thanks for looking.
