AAA Cards Challenge #148 Sketch + Animals , with video

This Fortnight our challenge is a sketch and the optional twist is : animals.

Our sponsor is Crafty Scrappers and you could win two digi stampsets.

I made two cards, one video, for the first card I rotated the sketch 90 degrees,so the  bar is at the left side.
I stamped the Art Impressions Cat Stackers and the sentiment from Stamping Bella (Courtney loves kitties) with My Favorite Things Extreme black ink and colored it with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils.
I only have the 24 pack of pencils, so to get a variety of cats was a challenge, but I think they turned out great, I filled in the sides with blue to reinforce the sketch.
Sadly I don't have the sentiment in the set, but I probably wouldn't have used it as it didn't fit  this way.

For the second card, I used the digi set from Craftyscrappers (waving hello). I placed them  on muy cardfront with Photoshop, keeping the sketch in mind
. Printed it and then colored it with Nuvo Alcohol markers and free handed the "sea". Nuvo shimmer pen on the mermaid tails and the fishes, cos they should be shiny....and slimey haha...I'm sorry the photo is a little dark.

The card with the Mummy is also a digi from our sponsor. I printed it on the Crafter's Companion marker paper and cut it out. The strip is masked and then inkblended like the sand dunes around Egypt...I hope..I thought they would fit the mummy. the sentiment is from the same set and I printed it on the cardpanel before inkblending. Added the mummy with foamtape.
