Gluteus Maximus

This is Gluteus Maximus from Dr Digi.
Look at him... all poised like a coiled spring - ready for any action that comes his way! He is certainly no Bum lazing around.

I ... on the other hand am quite the opposite this Sunday Morning and may just hide in my bed today...  I spent all yesterday at the Rugby club watching the local match and then England's World cup game. There were a few local bands playing and a BBQ set up too, so obviously I also had to partake in a little social drinking....

How ace is this image? I loved colouring him and I kept it quite traditional with Reds and Greys but I liked the touch of gold. I'm pleased with the way they have come together and its still a masculine card whilst being bright and colourful.

The 3 different patterned papers on this card are all from the Print Shop collection by Studio Calico. (Which I got for TK Maxx! A big 12x12 pad for £7.99 - Bargain!) I mounted the black grid onto Black bazzill and the red patterened paper onto red Bazzill just to make it stand out a little more. I glued 3 strips of Ribbon from a collection from American Crafts to form tabs and I added some yellow homemade Enamel dots. The greeting is a clear sticker from Kaiser Crafts and they are fab! I bought several packs of different occassions!

To colour Gluteus I used these promarkers and flexmarkers -
Skin - Antique White, blush, soft peach, coral, spice.
Body armour & Hat - Ice greys
Cape and plume - Poppy, Ruby & Cardinal
Sandles, skirt & Spear - Raw Sienna, Tan & Saddle brown.
T-shirt - Warm Grey 1-4

I also used a gold pen on the spear and his buttons.
