Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 5 April 2019

 Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog.

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "CATS OR DOGS".

Here is my inspiration post with that theme.
For my Egypt-style card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Glowing Dazzle" (it is available in a set along with "Purple Woods", "Winter Watcher" and "Purple Comfort").  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers.

I have used various papers/toppers from my Joanna Sheen Egyptian Adventure CD, Card Creations Egypt CD and my Debbi Moore Egyptian Promise CD for my handmade scrolls and pyramids image.

For the image, scrolls and topper I have torn all the edges and inked with a brown Versamagic ink pad.

For my scrolls I used some kebab sticks and coloured them black with a Promarker.  Once I had rolled up the torn edged paper into the scroll I added beads to the end of the kebab stick.

For the main background I used a postmark stamp and used my toffee Versafine ink pad onto craft card.

I have finished the card off with a stamped sentiment, X-cut punched out flowers with card candi centres and a die-cut sentiment.

The Promarkers that I have used are: 

Face/skin - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal 
Hair - Cocoa and Raw Sienna
Dress/headband/neckband - Duck Egg, Turquoise and Marine
Cat - Ice Grey 1, Ice Grey 2 and Ice Grey 3
Background - Buttercup, Pastel Yellow, Pastel Beige and Khaki.
