Digital Delights by Louby Loo Bucky

I have a new release Digital Delights by Louby Loo design team card to share today!
I used the digital stamp Bucky, sentiment set Western Sentiments & Western Accessories.

This was a really fun card to make.  I've been having a hard time merging/layering my design team images and figured out how to fix my problem in Photoshop Elements.  I knew I could do it!  :)  I used both Bucky and the cactus from the Western Accessories digital stamp sets and merged them together so Bucky is sitting in the "shade" of a saguaro cactus.  I'm an almost native to Arizona but originally came from Montana so this new release has me totally inspired!  Figuring out how to merge these images didn't hurt any either!

I used my Copic sky background technique for the sky and kind of wish I would have used a die cut sun in the corner but there isn't any room now - that's what I mean by I'm inspired, my mind is working overtime on this one.  The video tutorial for the Copic sky background can be found on my Copic tutorials page here.  I also made some digital paper using the Western Accessories digital stamp set, the tan paper was just too plain without anything on it.  

Here's my supply list:
