Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! This week's challenge theme is . . .
So here's the deal . . . my sister, Dee, asked me to make a card for a friend of hers who is former military and retiring from her job with the Veteran's Administration. Dee requested "fatigue" paper . . . and, as luck would have it, I actually had some!! Amaaaazing!! So, here's what I came up with . . .
HERE in Mo's online store. This image is also available as "Soldier Boy" HERE. Instead of paper piecing, I decided to color her uniform with Copics . . . and just used lots of colors dotted on here and there. I kinda like how it turned out! Here's a close-up . . .
And a bit of a side view . . .
