Reading to the birds

Happy weekend :-)
Hope you have been enjoying it so far. I can't complain here, had some time to finish this card plus I finally cleaned the coils on the fridge, which was long overdue.

The other day I had some time to read a tutorial on merging digistamps and actually had time to try it too. Many thanks to Debbie from Debbie P's Place for sharing it!!

I decided to use two digistamps from MelJen's designs. Doesn't it look like this little mouse is reading the birds a story? So cute! Of course I decided not to overlap anything at this point to make it easier for me so I didn't have to erase anything on this one.

It's been colored using Derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil. I used couture 80lb card stock which I got from "I heart papers". I have found out that this paper works beautifully with these pencils, I have been kind of disappointed in the results when using Georgia pacific card stock, so I won't be using it for coloring anymore.

Designer Paper is from my stash and then I used some bashful blue and old olive card stock. Embellished with some glitter, a tiny punched out flower and tiny pearl. Then I did some sewing with my Janome Mini. Sentiment is from a retired Stampin Up set.

I used the sketch from Everybody Art Challenge,
