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.

Supplies:
Cardstock:  Xpress-it (image panel), Georgia Pacific (cardbase, sun, sentiment), DCWV (yellow, blue)
Patterned Paper:  Unknown
Digi Stamps: Hambo (Cool Cat), StampArt Designs by Kathryne (Love to Think of You set), Daydream Designs (Sunshine and Rain set)
Ink: Memento (Summer Sky)
Copics: Sun (Y000, 11, 13, 15, 17; YR21; R22, 27; B000, 21, 23)  Cool Cat (B000, 21, 23, 26; BG01, 10; N5, 7; V04, 06, 09; R20, 22, 24, 27, 81, 83, 85; Y000, 11, 13, 15, 17; YR07, 20, 21; G14; YG03, 05)
Tools/Embellishments:  Spellbinders (Classic Squares Large and Small, M'Bossabilities Splendid side B), SU Crystal Effects, Uni-Ball White Opaque Pen, SU Stampin' Write marker (Night of Navy)
