Morning all - It's Sunday and whilst for most its lazy relaxing time... I will shortly be off to work. BOO! I want to stay home and colour but unfortunately I have to earn some money to support my crafty addiction.
This image is from Dr Digi - Corporal Clegg and I think he is ace - plus at the moment he is only £1.00! You can't get much for a £1 these days!
Initially I thought I'd colour his uniform in Red but I've done quite a bit of red lately so I went Khaki and I love how he turned out. (But a Red and Blue combo won't be far behind.) I've not added a greeting as I though it could be used for any occasion as it is and I can always add on later. I added the Ribbon, button and star etc so they gave an impression of medals.
Card Recipe -
Hobbycraft Kraft card is the base and the map paper is from Amercian Crafts - Do It Yourself collection which is great for mens cards. The Stars are from Doodlebug and the ribbon from The Ribbon Girl - Red Twill. The other bits were just from my stash but any twine, ribbon and buttons would work the same. A big gold or brass button would look great! (Note to self for next time!!) I also added Glaze to the buttons, Cane and Gloves. Seems I put glaze on everything at the mo.
I used these promarkers / Flexmarkers -
Shoes / Belt / Moustache - Black & Cool greys.
Uniform - Pastel beige, Pesto, Olive, Herb Green, Earth Yellow.
Shirt and tie - Khaki.
Hat - Burgandy, Cardinal red, Ruby & Poppy.
Skin- Usual combo of Antique White, Spice, Coral, Soft Peach & Blush.
Gloves - Nutmeg, Cocoa & Saddle Brown.
Gold buttons etc - Gold, Canary & Buttercup.
