Biker Bob Easel

Hi Folks!

Hope you're all well and having some good weather at last...it's a beautiful day here.  The sort of day I'd love for every day of the year.

So, here's Biker Bob! 

 This easel consists of a LOT of matting and layering.  The base card is made from Kraft card, and then there are three layers of Core'dinations on top of that...followed by a layer of Kanban paper.  

For this card I have used Copics, Promarkers AND had my first go with Graph It markers...and I love them!  I bought the set of 12 Warm Greys as I knew they'd be useful even if I didn't particularly like the pens as the colours really complement those in the Promarker Warm Grey set.  But I'm so glad I bought them to try as they blend fabulously and I'm going to be buying more!

So, the colours I've used are as follows:

Copics (skin) E00, E11 and E21
Graph It's - entire Warm Grey range
Promarkers - all Warm Grey colours AND Baby Pink for his cheeks and tattoo.  

Even the 'beige' bits on the bike are one of the Graph It Warm Greys set...perfect for the vintaged look.

I used Spellbinders dies for the embellies and that's that...a man's card for a hairy biker!  Perfick!  Uncle Graham's going to love it!  :o)

Hope you like Biker Bob.  The Gnomes of Gnarly Wood range will be growing and growing...they're such much fun to use and colour and I think they're going to add a lot of pleasure to everyone's crafting!

Take care everyone & happy crafting!
