Les' Retirement card.

 Morning Everyone - I know you will be reading this in the light of day but I am writing this in our holiday home in Wales after having just got in from eating the biggest Mexican meal and drinking a jug or two of Cosmopolitan! I really feel like I need to let it all hang out and relax now just like Walter!!

This card has been made for the boyfriends work buddy who is soon to retire. He has some grand plans for his free time but they all joke that he will end up spending his days sat around in his underpants, so Weekend Walter  was the perfect choice.   And because its a Digi image I was able to make this a big 8 x 8" card so there was plenty of room for all the good wishes.

The background papers are all from Echo Park - Note to Self collection as are the letters I've used for the greeting. I have edged the pattern papers in Bazzill Basics deep red. I have used 3d foam to stick Walter on and make him stand out a little. I also put a little bit of glaze on to his glasses.

I have used these Promarkers and Flex markers -
Skin - Antique White, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral & Spice
Dresing gown - Reef Blue, Twilight Sky, Polar Blue,Caribbean Blue & April showers.
Hair & newspapers - Warm Greys
Slippers - Saffron, Raw Sienna, Chestnut & Burnt Umber.
Pants - Ivory,Satin & Pastel Beige. Heatwave, Cardinal red & Burgundy.
I also went right the way around his outline with Icicle.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
Doodle Pantry Digital - ATC
Craftyhazelnuts pattern paper challenge. 
CCC Digi creations - Add a sentiment.

Have a fab day and week. I will try not to eat so much for the rest of the week!!
