Morning - again I'm running a little late... I've worked it out though - it's when I work late shifts as I really don't like getting up out of my bed!! I certainly would not appreciate Corporal Clegg from Dr Digi yelling at me to do my PTI!

 Well as its Father's Day - I had to post a card for the Dads. And don't they all love planes and military shows! It was also the perfect excuse to colour Corporal Clegg in with a red and blue theme. I like him in these colours but I'm not sure which Country he serves...
I can't express strongly enough how glad I am that I found Dr Digi images. They are perfect for all the Dads and Lads cards!

I made this card on a DL card and realised I have not made a DL card for Donkeys years... I used to do them all the time but now my go to shape is square 6x6 or C5. I think the DL has gone out of fashion because all paper pads are square and as you can see I have got a small join visible behind Corporal Clegg but you can't really notice it on the striped paper. Think i'm going to go on a mission to bring the DL back!!!

The papers are both from Doodlebug Stars & Stripes collection and the letters are from the Skinny collection at Doodlebug. I die cut the plane from more paper from the collection using a Cuttlebug Die that I've had for a while. The wooden exclamation mark is from Studio Calico which I bought at Hobbycraft. The Black swirl gems are also from Hobbycrafts collection. I used a little glaze on the hat, shoes and cain.

I coloured Corporal Clegg with these Promarkers & Flex markers -
Skin - Antique White, Blush, Soft peach, Coral & Spice.
Clothing - Red, Poppy, Ruby, Cardinal & Burgandy.
Leather - Saddle Brown & Henna
Shoes - Ice Greys & Black 
The blue details - Egyptian blue, True Blue & Azure.
I also used a gold Pilot pen to colour the buckles, cain and embellish his hat and buttons. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
