Everybody meet Cool Cat ... Cool Cat this is everybody
Cool Cat really spoke to me and I wanted this to have a postcard feel - you know "the weather is beautiful, wish you were here" kinda thing.
I started out cutting the wavy pieces for the background layer. I thought it gave it a beachy/water theme. Then I colored in everything trying to recreate the peace, calm, serenity and relaxation of my recent Florida vacation. I tried a sky shading technique I saw many months (maybe years) ago on Debbie Olson's blog - coloring next to the image, feathering it out and then using a colorless blender to smush it around.
The color scheme is Marina Mist, Spring Rain, Night of Navy, and too many Copics to mention :)
Thanks for stopping!
