Summer Pals

This card has been the best part of a fortnight in the making so I'm mighty glad to have got it done. It was originally going to be for Digital Tuesday - last week! The challenge had been to use two digi stamps from 2 different companies so I decided to create a little scene with these two digi stamps. The chiminea is from Crafty Ann's and the cat and mouse is from Karen's Doodles. I played about with the backgrounds in photoshop so that I could overlay them. My colouring medium is promarkers with a couple of the colours of brilliance inks from the peacock pad 'dusted' on with a shaving brush for the background, I cut the image out with nesties labels 4 and left it in place while I did the background then added and edge with a gold pentouch pen.

The bps are from Mottled stone collections 5 & 6 and both are actually purple but the camera is refusing to play ball and show you this!! The circular mat is white pearlised paper that's been put throught the cuttlebug. This paper is stunning when it's been bugged. Just for the record, I wasn't drunk when I added the pearls - I stamped onto the darker bp with a umount corner swirls stamp with versmark and added the pearls to siutable places on the swirly bits!

I'm entering my card into these challenges:
