Dunderton Academicals RFC.

Wow its Sunday morning again already! These weeks are flying by too quickly. Today Im showing you my DT card for over at Dr Digi using  Dunderton Academicals FC and his Balls. I used the balls to change the image from a Football player to a Rugby Player.

I'm trying to get ahead and make some Fathers Day cards ready for 21st June. I made this one with my Dad in mind - Who played rugby well into his 50's. Now at 70 - its a more sedate affair of Bowls! I have many happy memories of days spent hanging around the rugby club watching Dad play whilst the Mum were in the club house cooking up Pie and mash. I've made this card in the team colours and Derek looks more like my Dad today rather than back when he was playing!

I cut the image using Spellbinders Dies which I mounted on to the Bazzill Green stripe using the large Nestabilities. I cut a strip of Bazzill Black stripe glossed paper and stuck this to the side. I used homemade enamel dots in co-ordinating red and green and added the letters DAD using Doodlebug stickers. I also added a little glaze to his glasses to make them shine.

I used these Promarkers & Flexmarkers on Derek Dunderton -
Skin - Antique white, blush, soft peach, coral & Spice.
Shirt - Red, poppy & Cardinal Red / Forest green & apple
Shorts - Ice Greys
Shoes - Warm Greys

Grass - Meadow green, Forest green & apple
Sky - Glacier blue.
