Oops nearly Forgot!

To post my DT card for DU2DS, this week we had to MAKE A SCENE so rather than throw a wobbly I thought I'd make a pop up card! Big Mistake!
Several hours later this is what I ended up with. I did enjoy playing though and as always loved the challenge. The picture is one of Christines background images over at Sketching Stamper, I messed around with it in photoshop to separate the layers and extend the image where I needed to then cut it out and painted it with water colours. The hills were then stamped with a paper Artsy stamp and I made the flags and set the whole thing so it would pop up when opened. The sky is an image downloaded from the internet. I've been trying to think of some witty text to put on the card but I'm bereft of inspiration at the mo!

There are some fantastic digi stamps out there, and more being offered every day, which are perfect for this challenge cos you can resize them to fit whatever scene you like or even insert images into a scene if you have a little know how (or know a (wo)man who does!!) The DT have created some superb crafty bits for the challenge, pop over to DU2DS and have a look.
