You Are My Sunshine
I have had this kitty digi for awhile but have never colored him. Tonight was the night. I also got brave and decided to try masking the image to sponge clouds in the background. It was a lot easier than I thought and I like how it turned out. I will definitely be trying this technique again. After I finished coloring and sponging, I die cut the image and a mat with spellbinders.
The sun was colored with copics and then fussy cut. I added SU Crystal Effects to his shades. He is popped up over the image panel. The yellow background layer is embossed with an M'Bossabilities embossing folder. I used PSE to alter the sentiment to make it fit on one line. Some faux stitching completes the card.
