The Traveller

This is a new digiz release from Dewdrop Craftz and I think he's awesome! I love the mystery surrounding him, where has he come from, where is he going? Couldn't wait to colour him in! I loved doing his hair and clothes, the lines are perfectly drawn to flow nicely and I hope I've done a good job!

I'm entering this into the following challenges;

Passion for Promarkers - Vintage

My time to craft - Very Vintage

Creative Card Crew - Favourite Things

Quixotic Paperie - Ripped paper

Dare U digi - Glitter

Lots to Do - Free Theme

I used DCWV Old Worlde as my base layer and distressed with brilliance coffee bean ink, curling one of the corners and distressing the edges. The mount is a torn piece of starburst stains in Saxifrage Olive Copper which is a gorgeous green with copper shine so looks very aged.
The image is The Traveller digiz by Dewdrop Craftz
which a brand spanky new release this week. He's coloured with Promarkers in...

Face: Ivory, Blush, Vanilla
Eyes: Leaf Green, Emerald, Cool grey 4
Clothes: Lime Zest, Pear Green, Moss, Marsh Green
Hair: Vanilla, Sandstone, Cinnamon, Cocoa

The clasp thingy for his scarf I embossed the centre jewel using a versamark pen then used moonglow fiddlehead fern green embossing powder, did this 3 times to give it some depth and added a sticky gem. The 'metal' I used a glue pen and some fab gold leafing foil. The snow on his shoulder I used aleens glitter snow, mainly because I couldnt find my puffy stuff. It said let dry for 24 hours, oh no we don't! I heat dried it from underneath and the top, it actually fluffed up a bit like puffy stuff who's name totally escapes me at the moment! Before it dried I sprinkled on some glamour dust to give it more sparkle then I edged the card with the brilliance ink and also lightly onto the snow to take the white glare down as the card is vintage themed afterall :D

I added some ribbon and some beads, the large green bead is something off one of DD1's Primark belts or something and the bottom beads are emerald green crackle beads and swarovski crystal AB beads which are my absolute favourite thing at the mo!

Also a quick reminder that Dewdrop Craftz challenge 2 is still open if you wish to enter, the theme is "Summer of Love" and not christmas lol! Click here to have a peek.

Thanks for looking!
