Police Alert

Hello dear Copic friends!
This is Kathrin here today with a new creation using the fabulous Copic Markers.

For this post I made a man project. We all love cute cards with lots of embellishments but well, these are usually not what the men in our lives love to get. So when one of my co-workers had to leave for a class of 2 years we gave him this as his farewell gift. 

It's called a school cone and usually german kids get one of these - just quite bigger - for their very first day of school, filled with candies and little gifts.

I used a Kenny K Digi-Image on this one and used the real colors the dresses of the bavarian policemen are wearing.

I love the cool and strong look this digi has. 
It took me quite a while and some mixing of different colors to get them look real. But that's the great thing about Copics - mixing and layering makes everything possible.
Behind the image I put a patch shaped label that was only glued down at the middle, so the image gets a darker background to pop out more and also is able to get attached flat. I wouldn't have loved to have to wrap around him around the cone...

The rest of the cone has been decorated with little cut out guns and hand cuffs.

These are the Copics that I used to color this digi in:

Skin: E13, E11, E51, E30, E000
Trousers: E87, E81, YG91
Shirt: Y28, E31, Y21
Shoes, Belt etc: 100, T7, T5, T3, T1
Hat: C4, C1, C00
Green Patch: YG97, YG95, YG91
Golden accessoires on the hat: YR24, Y17, Y13, Y00
Hair: YR23, Y21, Y00

Have a great and sunny spring day everyone!
