Now this is the sort of request that gets me excited! I was asked for 'something with a Scottish Piper on it for my dad's 80th birthday!" My main worry was where on earth I would find such an image but once again the internet was my friend. I googled images of pipers and found this fab image which is actually a colouring sheet for a child.
I used my trusty promarkers (Forest Green, Cornflower and Cool Grey3 ) for the colouring and I paper pieced the kilt and shawl with rather fetching tartan paper - this is the first time I have tried this technique and I am dead pleased with the result. I decoupaged the bagpipes which nicely covered up the raw edges of the tartan paper.
I've decided to enter this card into the following challenges...
Digital Tuesday Let's Celebrate (must include digi image)
Papertake Weekly Challenge Anything Goes
Passion For Promarkers Anything Goes (using promarkers)
