Enjoy Your Special Day

The Outlawz - March Freebie/Progressive Challenge using Anne's Digital Art "Catch of The Day" this freckle-faced fisherman and using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #285 turning to portrait.  Printed two digitals, die cut one  with a rectangle frame, colored image with a variety of Copic pens, layered with Goldrush cardstock and used a pastel blue watercolor pencil for the background.  The second digital was colored partially for the pieces needed for a dimensional look, fussy-cut and adhered on top of image with 3D thin foam tape.  

Die cut the cloud in two colors, the blue being the shadow, and the white to stamp on a Sentiment in Goldrush ink.  The inside of the card, just added another design paper border along the side.  Didn't have any cuts or stamps that I could fit in.  The other photo was closer to show the dimension of the image (hat, fish, shirt and shoes).
