Ronnie says Cheers !!!!

I made this card using the lovely Ronnis Says Cheers image which was designed by Sally-Anne at the Digistamp Boutique especially for Crafty Emma to raise funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance service. All the money raised from the sale of this stamp will go directly to the appeal :-)

I followed the fab sketch on the Truly Scrumptious Challenge the optional extra of petals, pearls and pins just wouldn't work so I gave them a miss :-)
I coloured the image with Copics and added Prisma pencils, blended with sansador for a more furry appearance . the beer is Guiness by the way :-) I used some applique glue for the froth, overdid it bit there ,, the barman is rubbish lol :-) The papers are Basic Grey Max and Whiskers and I used some pencil shavings for sawdist (it is a spit n sawdust kindda bar:-)) a few buttons, a paw print velvet ribbon ( from Meiflower) a fish bone charm and a few Robins Nest Dew Drops.
