Rocky the Black eyed boxer.

This,  Ladies & Gents, is Rocky. He is another great image from Dr Digi.


I am about a week late posting this as I made it for my Brother In Laws Birthday last Sunday but also there was the big Boxing match in America - so it would have been very topical. Boys seem to love boxing - I don't really get it.
But here he is Rocky for you on this weeks card. I kept this card simple in design and colour as I think the Image alone is enough.

Card recipe -
I printed Rocky off  fairly big and coloured him in using Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I attached a strip of the big bold dot paper from my stash of Echo Park Dots & Stripes. I also added some Black Bazzill card to the card base and then added the Rocky piece to the base using large 3d foam pads. I used a Pebbles "Happy Birthday" and some washi tape  I bought from Tesco! I attached some Doodlebug enamel dots in purple to co-ordinate with Rocky's black eye. Once I had coloured his gloves I covered them with Glaze.

Promarkers & Flex markers used -
Skin - Spice, Coral, Soft Peach, Blush & Antique white. Violet & Bluebell for his shiner!
Gloves & Shorts - Burgundy, Cardinal red, Ruby, Poppy, Red & Lipstick Red.
Belt & Boots - Cool Grey 1 to 5 & Black.
