New Digistamps4Joy releases - 18 Nov. 2012

This is my first card to showcase one of the new Digistamps4Joy releases this morning.

I used the new image which I drew called "Meerkat Mervyn". These cute little animals are plentiful in our country South Africa, and I thought a perfect sentiment could be for a friend to say I am looking out for her. I played around a little in Word with the PNG version of the image which has a transparent background. I copied Mervyn three times, moved one copy slightly behind the other, then with the third copy I re-sized and flipped Mervyn to create the smaller meerkat on the left. All 3 of these "Mervyns" were merged onto the image called "Log" also in the Digistamps4Joy store.


From my stash, I found a piece of paper - that's probably been there more than a year already - that looks like rippled sand, diecut out the middle shape, and pasted this onto a patterned brown paper. The log was coloured with my SN pens, while I used watercolour pencils to colour the 3 images. The gold flowers were actually a dull brown material, but I spritzed them with gold. Some brown and gold ribbon, a PC generated sentiment, and a few pearls complete the picture.

To see the rest of the fantastic new releases and the cards the DT made with them, head on over to the DS4J BLOG.

I am entering the card into the following challenges
