City Crafter - You are my Sunshine


This week's challenge at City Crafter is 'You are My Sunshine.... Use lots of yellow. '

I was flicking through an old magazine and saw the image I've used above (by Kirsty Neale) . It was on the 'template' pages of the magazine and when I checked my computer I discovered that I had downloaded a digital version of the templates at the time. I coloured it with Promarkers, paper-pieced with Cosmo Cricket scrap patterned paper and added a die-cut balloon which I inked and stamped with a Hampton Art chevron stamp. The sketchy sun with the word 'sun' were created in Silhouette studio and I added yellow embellishments such as flowers, button, washi tape and a metal flower. 

I hope you will join us at City Crafter. Pop over now and meet our GD, Margaretha.
