Oh Look at that Hose!!! - SCSC DT and a little special Candy

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next challenge at the

with the very talented Sonia choosing the theme of

The Professionals
ie. Dr/Nurse/Fireman

now this week we are sponsored by
Heathers Hobbie Haven

who is offering the winner a $15 voucher

So here is what I created for your inspiration, but don't forget to hop on over to the main challenge blog to check out the other fabulous creations.
I made a birthday card for a friend who just happens to be a fireman, I know three fireman in total, so may be using this one again.

I used a base colour of gold which is also the complimenting colour.  The papers are from Grimsby Crafts, sorry cannot remember the name of the stack, but I think it is the Steam Punk one that I used for the last Candy I did.  The sentiment is from Wild Rose Studio called Birthday Circles  

The hose was hand made using The Electrical Shielding Tape which can be purchased on e bay (mine comes from the electrician, the husband) look on e bay and search for 3M Scotch 24 Electrical Shielding Tape.  I airbrushed mine using Y08 and then stole the lid from my pinflair syringe and glued this for spout.(please keep it clean !!!!)

Here is the image coloured in copics
edited sorry forgot to tell you that this is a Dude Time Doodles image called Howie Hot Hot Hot!!!!!!!

Hi Kate, Ah this is super, what a great card, love that you have used the electrical tape, it looks perfect for the job. Seeing the tape in sliver I would be tempted to use it on Christmas cards instead of ribbon on some. Thanks for sharing with us on our Birthday Celebrations on MAWTT, Love Hazelxo
