There's A New Boss In Town :)

You can't possibly imagine the joy which all our friend felt when we found out that one of our friend has become head of local municipality (of a small country district, but still...). I certainly had to make a card for him.
As I didn't have many supplies with my on my small countryside holiday, I went to local office supply store and bought some pencils, black fine-liner pen and a watercolor paper. Then I went browsing and found two interesting images of bosses:
I draw them into a composition and the colored with ProMarkers. It was kind of hard to do on a watercolor paper as the ink bled quite much, but it also was very, very easy to blend colors together.
at the beginning I am drawing my illustrations with pencil and so did this time. Then I wanted to go over it with a fine-line pen I had bought but it turned out to react with ProMarkers, so I did the coloring on pencil sketch and only then went over with a pen.
Sentiment says Congratulations, but that little tag says "Be Yourself" - as a reminder not to loose himself in the big machinery of bureaucracy. I also added pair of playing cards - well Ace of-course is for being boss, but cards themselves as he does sometimes enjoy a good game of poker with all our friends.
Along with the roses lace and teal lace mentioned in my Red and Teal post, I also bought two spools of twine - white and natural. I thought that the natural one would go very nicely with my real coffee stained crocheted lace and button (both from the gift pack).
Papers as always from K&Company.
this card also goes into Allsorts Craft Free And Easy challenge as well as in I Love ProMarkers Anything goes challenge.
