I just can’t get enough of the super cute digi stamps of Doctors and Nurses designed by Birdie Brown and made available for free (through April 2020) from MFT Stamps. This card features the male doctor from the digi set, “Bedside Manner” and is a thank you card I’ve made for another Everyday Hero in my community (I erased the nose and mouth of the digi and doodled on a mask with a 0.5 pt black Copic Multiliner Pen).
I wanted to give this doctor a Mediterranean look so I chose the following Copics and Prismacolor Premium Colored Pencils:
Skin: E00, E11, E13 and R20 (blush) with Prismacolor Beige (997) and Black Cherry (1078)
Hair: E81, E84, E87, E79 and 90% Warm Grey (1058)
Everything else I picked using the MFT Color Challenge in mind:
Lab coat and mask (doodled on with a 0.05 pt black Copic Multiliner Pen): C00, C01 and C2 with White Prismacolor Colored Pencil (938)
Blue shirt and glove: B21 and B23
Red tie: R14 and R27
Grey pants: W3, W5 and W7
Shoes: C3, C5, C6 and C9
I fussy cut out the image with my very Fiskars Reverse Spring Loaded Scissors and inked the edges (especially the nooks and crannies from the back) with a Memento Tuxedo Black Marker.
For the background, I followed the MFT Sketch Challenge and used up some great wood grained paper that had a fun large cream spots pattern. I hand cut the banner and even the swoosh design that I thought gave the doctor a great “grounding” with more scraps from my scrap box.
I popped up the doc on double sided foam adhesive for his head and torso and glued him down behind his legs and feet onto the swoosh floor that I had layered up to add a little interest. I also popped up the whole banner with fun foam that I glued down to add extra dimension.
There was a perfect “blank” spot just to the left of the doc on the patterned wood grain polka dot paper so I hand wrote in with a Uniball Signo White Gel Pen, “DOCTOR = HERO”. For the inside liner I stamped out a sentiment from the Newton’s Nook Designs “Thankful Thoughts” stamp set, “THANKS A MILLION BILLION TRILLION SQUILLION!” I also added some hand cut “squills” (is that a word?) from left over scraps of the wood grained paper and the tangy orange card stock I had used on the doctor’s tie and the borders around the swoosh floor.
