Rescue Squad.

Sorry I'm a little late posting today - we got a visit from our Godchildren last night so I didn't get chance to get all finished up! (They know me too well and came bearing chocolate & wine - well trained for 3 & 5 yrs old!!)

So without further a do... here is my card using Rescue Squad. 

I kept it all Cool using blues and whites as its a fab image to use for all those difficult men in your life! I stayed with the manly theme and added the Kraft and brown but couldn't resist a few gems and a bit of sparkle.  

The background paper is from Bo Bunny - Powder mountain collection. I mounted the image and paper on Blue bazzill card to make them pop out.  I stamped a greeting from My Favourite things called Toasty Greetings. I mounted that onto a little gold and added a few gems here and there. I glued a die cut icicle edge to the top of the card and a couple of die cut dangling snowflakes with gem centres for some more sparkle. Finally I tied some Doodlebug winter ribbon around the image panel and used a gold pen to add some metallic details to his zip and the tap. 

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour the image - 
Dog - Light Fawn, Raw Sienna,Chestnut & Walnut.
Barrel - Tan, Chestnut & Cocoa.
Nose - Coral, Soft Peach, Blush & Antique white. 
Coat - Frozen Lake, Pastel blue & Egyptian Blue trim.
Boots & gloves - Cool grey 2. 
Handles & straps - Cool grey 4 & 5

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

Everyone is so busy this time of year so I won't keep you any longer - I know I still have a raft of cards to make (Especially for my family who always seem to get left till last!)
The weather is a bit grizzly so it the perfect excuse to no stray away from my desk... who knows I may even train my dog to bring me a little glass of sherry to keep me going!!

Have a lovely day
