Melvin the mod

Morning All - Today I am sharing with you a card I made for Making Cards magazine using Melvin the Mod  from Dr Digi.
I had a big birthday this last week and the various celebrations have gone on all week so all my good intentions of having a brand new creation for you have gone a little wayward!!

Ingredients –
Paper – My Favourite things – Black & White basics
Lawn Fawn Large stitched circle dies.
American Crafts Thickers Letters
Craftworks card greeting panel.
Orange stickles
Silver & White pen
Blue, white & Red card / paper.

     I made a square card blank into a round base card by trimming off the corners. I used a Lawn Fawn die to cut the circles of different colour papers and glue onto the base card and covered the bottom section of the card with black and white patterned paper.
    I used these Promarkers for skin - Skin – Antique White, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral & Spice.
   And these Copics  -
Tyres & Shoes - C7, C5, C3 & Black
Jeans – B93, B95 & B97
Jacket – YG63, G85 & YG67
Bike – B000, B00 & BG01
Light – Y17, YR04 &YR07
     I Cut around Melvin and put 3D foam on the rear and place him on the base card off centre. I     added some details to metal of the bike with a silver pen and some highlights with a white pen and used some stickles to make the headlight shine.
     I used Amercian thickers to add the letter stickers to spell out a greeting and  mounted the greeting panel from Craftworks card onto black so it stands out, cut around and stick to your finished card with 3D Foam.

I  I hope you like my card and will join me back here on Wednesday when I have new cards to show you from The Paper Shelter.
