Doctorate of Thinkology

Here is a fun card I created using Doodle Pantry's new release Li'l Scare. I also used  the new set Old Wheelbarrow. Using an image software program, I first placed the scarecrow, and I did a horizontal flip so he was facing the opposite direction. I placed the wheelbarrow so it looked like it rested in his hand. The diplomas were rotated and stacked in the wheelbarrow and then one on the ground. Then I added the sentiment, which is also from the Li'l Scare set. The images were colored with Copic markers (scarecrow: hat & jeans - B93, B95, B97; shirt - YG23, YG25, YG67; hair and straw - Y23, Y26; buttons and shoes - C4, C5, C9; skin - E00, R02; rope and wheelbarrow - E33, E37, E59; diplomas - C0, C2, R37, B93, B97). I then layered it on black card stock and used the ribbon fibers behind it to mimic the straw coming out of him. The designer paper is from the Li'l Scare set as well. The card base is white card stock.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
