I painted the wooden base white, then mixed some fresco acrylic
paints in green, dark brown, light brown and cream and painted
two coats of camouflage, it actually took quite a while
especially as my first attempt (last picture) I loved but didn't
like what I did with the image so I used the other side lol.
I coloured up the image with promarkers (details of the ones
I used in recipe at end of post) and cut him out. I stamped on tissue paper
and glued the army vehicles on the background. I used
shrink plastic to make some charms to hang of the para cord which
my son gave me.
The chipboard letters were also painted :-)
I took a picture of my sons cadet uniform for inspiration :-)
My first attempt which I love the background but I coloured
the image onto tissue paper and coloured it with promarkers on the back.
I wanted him to sort of blend into the background but didn't actually
like it in the end :-)
Don't forget to pop on over and see the other DT's creations and don't forget you can also enter on facebook. Hope everyone has a crafty Sunday, Happy Crafting :-)
