I thought I would share a new character from the newly released Work and Play 2 Collection at Polkadoodles. This was released yesterday and I have had this made for over a week.
This CD is another great collection and covers a multitude of occupations and hobbies. It comes with some fabulous sentiments and papers too!
Here is the card I came up with. I was going with a simple card and thought that the soldier would look great standing in front of a tent like card.
I have paper pieced his clothes with the camouflage papers and then coloured him with pencils. Did you know that I used to be in the Royal Air Force (UK) (I served just over 9 years, Andy did 18 years) and wore this get-up!? And I have actually fired a Sub Machine gun and this type of rifle :-)
For the tent I just printed the camouflage paper on some beige card stock. Cut a line up the centre front layer, and folded them back to look like the flaps of the tent, adding some brads to secure them. The base of the card has just been shaded with a dark pencil.
A close up of the little soldier, shows Nikky's meticulous attention to detail, when she is drawing her digis.
For the inside, I just used the camouflage paper again, and added a little white to write on.
This is the CD I used - Work and Play Collection 2.
