Happy New Year

For this card, I merged two digi stamps from DS4J.  It was the first time I was successful in doing this technique.  I used Photoscape for this one.  I had tried to merge before using PSE 5, but it didn't work for me.  I guess it can be done, but not being very computer savvy, I couldn't do it.  I played with Photoscape and by dumb luck, happened on merging.  The two stamps are from DigiStamps4Joy online stamp store, "Sharon" and "2013" Fireworks were the two stamps I used.  I was quite pleased with myself for finally learning how to merge.

I colored the images with Crayola colored pencils.  The die cuts were from a Spellbinders die set.  I used a Copic marker to color the clear rhinestones and added a piece of ribbon from an unknown source.
