Create a scene Thursday!

The current challenge over at Mad for Markers Challenge Blog is create a scene.  I have never done a card like this so it was a challenge.  I had a few stamps in mind and went searching for digi stamps to make a background. I found this urban fencing at Make it Crafty and thought it would fit perfectly  with Thursday the stamp I won at the Mad for Markers blog hop a while back (Thank you Sammi).  So  I stamped my image masked it printed it out and realised it didn't look right it needed more to the background.  I really wanted an old abandoned building I couldn't find one to suit so I got a clip art recoloured it and used the sketch function in photoshop elements then put my digital stamps over that and printed it out....and it looked alright. I coloured the stamped images with copics.  When I was happy with that I added derwent pencils to the graffiti on the building and some 2B shavings to darken up the door.  I think it turned out alright for my first attempt at creating a scene and mixing clip art, digi and rubber stamps.  What do you think?
So I used:
