Fireman Jude

It's release day for the new Simply B Stamps, Jude and the Rockers Just for Fun collection! Plus, we have a special blog hop for you today! We will be sharing the last image in the collection with you, which is Fireman Jude. You should be coming here from Barbara's Blog. If you get lost along the way, you can hop over to the SBS Blog to get back on track.  Would you like to see what I've made?

Look at Jude with his little puppy! I was a little worried about coloring this image at first, because of all the black. I wanted the textures to look different, since the uniform is obviously made of a much different material than the hat is! Do you think I succeeded?

I made the shine on the uniform a little blotchy, and I used more of a flicking technique on the helmet, as I imagine that it would be much shinier than the uni. I found some fabulous yellow fabric in with my Mom's scraps that I just had to use. I frayed the heck out of it for more texture, and stapled it to the image and the black cardstock.

I added a red star button. But my favorite thing (besides the image, of course!), is that ribbon. Why? Because the center is actually reflective! Just like on a real fireman's suit! I tried to get a good pic of it reflecting light, but I couldn't do it. But trust me, it's super cool! My sentiments are from a Care Bears stamp set I have. I thought they were perfect here! 
Now it's time for you to visit sweet and sassy Lea. I know you will see something fabulous there! I hope you have enjoyed this release. Thanks for stopping by! Have an inspiring day!!!
