Hello - Today's card is using Run Derek Run. Its a lovely Sunny fresh day here which makes a change from the Rain in the North West lately but it also means there is no excuse not to get those trainers on and get out for a jog. Apparently, Friday was the the day when most people give up on there New Years Resolutions, but I've done pretty well keeping mine so far! All our family got Fitbits for Christmas and blimey it has made us all obsessed and talk about competitive?! We are all trying to out do each other with how many steps a day we can do so this card is perfect for any of my troop at the minute. (My Dad was caught jogging on the spot to get his totals up and the dog is now hiding from him as he is so tired from going out walking all the time!)
To make this card I cut a large panel of the Studio Calico paper from Here and Now collection and mounted this on to paper from Pebbles Happy Day collection. (I treated myself to a stack of new paper pads over the hols!) I used a friskars punch to create the edge (Which has gone a little wonky at the end!) From the same Pebbles pad I cut the greeting panel and also the blue paper it is mounted on. I stuck this to the card with 3D foam.
I added some yellow chevron ribbon from American Crafts and also some Doodlebug sprinkles in yellow and orange arrows and triangles. Finally I used some glaze on his glasses and gold pen on the safety pin.
I coloured Derek using these promarkers and flexmarkers -
Skin - Antique White, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral & Spice.
T-shirt - Capri blue, Cadet Blue & Egyptian blue.
Shorts & Mustache - Cool greys.
Headband - Summer Sun & Vanilla, Bright orange & Burnt Orange.
Eyes - Powder blue
