I thought I'd try something a bit different this week - What do you think of Anglin' Andy??
So many Dr Digi images are perfect for making stand up character cards as they have such clean lines. I made this card by simply printing the image 4 times... stay with me... One was for the base card which I printed onto the right hand side of a A4 Sheet - I scored down the edge of the image, folded and then cut around Andy.
The second I printed onto the textured card which I then cut around to be his waders (Is that the right term??) The third I printed onto the shimmer card and cut out the be the Fish.
The fourth I coloured with my pens and this is base for all the paper pieces to be stuck onto. Finally this layer was then stuck to the base card so the folder edge and all the reverse of the colouring can't be seen. (If I had though ahead I should have photographed the various stages... Promise I will next time I do this style!)
I had to draw over the lines on the textured card with a permanent marker as they faded a little and I also used promarkers to add some shading. I used a silver pen on the fish hooks and Glaze to make his glasses shine. Finally I used a black gem from Papermania on the Fish' eye.
I used these Promarkers and Flexmarkers -
Skin - Antique white, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral & Spice.
T-shirt - Red Sweater, Cardinal red & Burgundy
Hat - Khaki, Herb green, Pesto & Olive Green.
Bag - Petrol blue, Navy blue & Black.
Shading on Waders - Warm Greys
It wasn't a quick card but I think the effect is worth it. I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
Hope you have a lovely day and fingers crossed it stops raining!
