Here is a card I have made as part of the Sweet Pea Stamps Design Team.
The image that I have used is by Norma J Burnell and is called "Firefly Friends Owl". It is available as a digital stamp (at a cost of $3.00) and single rubber stamp (at a cost of $5.99). I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers/Flexmarkers in lots of different shades of blue and highlighted areas with my Sakura Stardust clear pen and white gel pen. I have used my Tim Holtz distressing tool around the image and then inked around it with Tim Holtz's Tumbled Glass and Broken China distress inks.
The backing papers I have used are from a Christmas DCWV paper pad. I have die-cut some flowers out of leftover paper. The card has been finished off with some stain ribbon, spotty organza ribbon, flowers, gems, die-cut buttons, die-cut scrolls and a sentiment off the computer.

Sweet Pea Stamps - Norma J Burnell
Up until this week Norma J Burnell's gorgeous images were available as rubber stamps. This week sees them available as digital stamps. That is brilliant for those that (a) prefer digital stamps or (b) prefer the speedier arrival of digital stamps as us crafters can be VERY impatient people!!
With the arrival of the digital stamps to "live" side-by-side with the rubber stamps there has been a change in the Angel Policy with regard to Norma J Burnell images as follows (as taken from the Sweet Pea Stamps blog post):
