Good Morning - Today is Remembrance Sunday so I have made today's card using Corporal Clegg.
from Dr Digi.
I am really
interested in my family history and have done a huge family tree. I
found one relative who was in a prisoner of war camp and died two days
before liberation - So sad! I managed to find where his war grave is in
Belgium and was able to have his story remembered by the Royal British legion campaign to commemorate every fallen solider.
It really is an amazing and interesting site and really quite easy to
find any relatives they may have been involved in the Wars. I hope every generation continues to remember and be thankful for the sacrifices made by these Soldiers.
really wanted to use the poppy paper but mixed it with the wood effect
to create some harsh contrast to the pretty flowers - I guess that's
part of the symbolism of the Poppy in War.
The poppy paper is from Prima "The Optimist" range and the wood is from My Minds Eye - Necessities collection - Wood.
I thought the zig zag card fold worked well as it allowed the different papers to be seen. I added a small paper poppy flower that I bought from The Ribbon Girl. Finally added "lest we forget" using little letter stickers from Webster Pages. I also added Glaze to the buttons, Cane and Gloves.
I used these promarkers / Flexmarkers to colour Corporal Clegg -
Shoes / Belt / Moustache - Black & Cool greys.
Uniform - Pastel beige, Pesto, Olive, Herb Green, Earth Yellow.
Shirt and tie - Khaki.
Hat - Burgandy, Cardinal red, Ruby & Poppy.
Skin- Usual combo of Antique White, Spice, Coral, Soft Peach & Blush.
Gloves - Nutmeg, Cocoa & Saddle Brown.
Gold buttons etc - Gold, Canary & Buttercup.
