Rescue Squad in Plaid

Morning - Today's Dr Digi image is called Rescue Squad. 
I love the current trend for red and black plaid! I think I need a shirt just like this patterned paper! But how cosy does he look in his fur lined coat and gloves.
We are currently decorating our front room so we have no carpet down and it is freezing in there! I need this coat and gloves! 

The base paper is from My Minds Eye Comfort and Joy collection whilst the plaid is from Simple Stories Classic Christmas. I mounted both these panels onto green bazzill card and wrapped some twine around the base and knotted in glove charm that was from my stash. I then cut an oval shape using my friskars cutter which I attached on top using 3d foam. I then placed the image on to the oval panel which is from American Crafts and has a wood grain texture to it. Finally I used a gold pen to add some metal details.

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour the Rescue Squad -
Dog - Warm Greys
Jacket - Poppy, Ruby, Cardinal Red & Burgundy
Fur - Tan, Sandstone & Cinnamon.
Trousers - Pine & Forest Green.
Boots & Gloves - Holly.
Barrel - Cinnamon, Raw Sienna & Cocoa.
All edged with Powder blue.

Hope you like today's creation - and are enjoying and hopefully getting some inspiration from these Christmas cards.
Thanks for stopping by, Liz (:(|)x
