Morning - Firstly I'm sorry I haven't been around for a while - I have been very busy at work. I have made this card as a little colouring therapy for me as a break from work but also to show my thanks for all those first responders and people who risk there safety on a daily basis -I include all the emergency services in that - not just the police!
I'm sure you will all have seen the horrific news and footage of events in Manchester last week on the 22nd May. I got called into work in Manchester at 11.30 pm that evening to help deal with the incident but I was in a safe location away from any risk so I do not consider myself as one of the "heroes" but I feel priviledged to have been able to do my bit to help all those affected.
So I hope you don't mind my card being a slightly different take on the challenge theme of Super Heroes over at I love Promarkers using this image from Digital Delights called Policeman Scottie.
I used a Die-namincs banner die to cut the banner in gold card and used Doodlebug letters to add the letters and a red Hobbycraft heart.
I used Harolds ABC alphabet from Lawn Fawn to spell out and stamp the greeting.
I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour the image -
Skin - Antique White, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral & Spice.
Hair - Umber & Cinnamon
Uniform - Storm Blue, Twlight Sky, Midnight Blue & Indigo Blue
Hat & Shoes - Cool Greys.
I also used a touch of black and a gold pen to add some metallic details.
I hope you like my card - it was first chance to colour for a while so it was definatly a way of relaxing. I don't know about you but I don't really think about anything else when I am busy using my pens.
Thanks for stopping by - Please leave a comment so I know who's beeeeen!
