OSAAT #152 - Use a Digi

A nice easy challenge for you this week - Use a Digi. Come along and join us at One Stitch at a Time challenge blog. The winner will be awarded all the digi images used by the DT in challenge 150, wow!!

My image this week is by Luke, over at Stitchybear Digital Stamps Shop. It's called Adventure Boy, Floating and isn't he cute?

I used a small Craft UK card as the base. I coloured the image with Promarkers, cut it with a Spellbinders die and used Distress Ink on the edges before adding it to a backing paper of sky, printed from Joanna Sheen's Thomas Kinkade CD. This was matted on to yellow, orange and red card from Papermill - the mats matched the colours of the balloons which I'd cut with a Provo Craft die. The strings of the balloons were drawn in red  Sakura pen, I'm not sure it was a good idea but it's done now so can't be undone!! I generated the sentiment on the computer and cut it with another Spellbinders die, backing it with a red scalloped die cut. I like this card, even though I've just realised that I haven't highlighted the die cut balloons to give them some 'roundness'. Flip!

I'm entering the card into the following challenges:
