This is another card design that I have merged the digital with the hand colored. I designed in Silhouette Studio. First I created a rectangle sized at 5.5×4.25 inches. Then I duplicated that rectangle and placed the second one exactly over the first one and then pulled the top border down so to create the area that was to be the paving. I filled the large rectangle with a sky pattern and the smaller one with a brick pattern. Then I worked with the sizing of the brick pattern so that the bricks were sized correctly for my card. I also recently discovered that one can do simple color balance, hue and saturation changes to images in Silhouette Studio and so I adjusted the hue of the sky to make it a night sky rather than the bright blue that it was. Lastly I placed the image on the card as the top layer and sized it accordingly and printed the whole design out onto Daler-Rowney Drawing paper.
