I've had the promarkers out again. This time I used a digistamp from Teri at Delicious Doodles. I bought it and then thought 'Zebras don't need colouring!' It only took a few minutes to think about colouring the background though, and it could be done in virtually any combination of colours. I'm thinking of trying a purple sunset next. The background paper is made with a stamp by an American called Katy Widger and I bought it from Blade Rubber stamps on a visit to London. The stamp company is Rubber Poet. If anyone knows a stockist of these in the UK please let me know, because I'd love some more. I used Kaleidacolor creole spice ink, a Martha Stewart punch and the Victoria cuttlebug embossing folder and some brilliance gold ink to burnish the edges. Thanks for looking x

Gorgeous Zebras Sally and like you say you could do the sky in any colour combo.
That background stamp is amazing and works perfectly. It'd look great with any sort of African image wouldn't it.
Hope you had a great time at Lynne's today, how where those Muffins!!!!
Have a great Sunday.

Fantastic card and even better in real life - the photo doesn't do it justice.

That sky background is gorgeous Sally and how unusual is that lovely background stamp. I can see why you'd like some more.

What's this about muffins ?!? Lol!!!
