What happens when you merge two sets – one filled with a van of animals and one ready to surf? You get FUN! I am using two Jane’s Doodles sets – Road Trip and Surf’s Up for this card today.

I added wheels to one of the surf boards in Surf’s Up and made it into a skate board for this cool and hip gator. I made a background using Distressed Oxide inks in Salty Ocean, Antique Linen, and Black Soot to make the scene setting.  I added dots using Copics to make the grass and the pebbled asphalt road. A white gel pen makes the dotted two-lane road.

I added a couple of clouds in the sky, a bird and surf board to the top of the van and heat embossed in white the “Dude” and “Life is a journey…” phrases. This card is a 5″ X 7″ (A7) card.
