It's a fair cop

Hello, hello, hello. What's all this then?

Today's card is a sneaky peek at one of the new Lili of the Valley stamps that are being launched at the NEC on Thursday, and then available on the website from 10th November. This one is called 'Cops and Cooks'* and includes several sentiments as well as two images. 
* Guess what is going to be on my next card :D

I've coloured him with my Graph'It markers:
Uniform: 9104, 9106
Shoes: 9506, 0000
Metal: 9500, 9502, 9503
Skin: 4110, 4125, 4135

He wouldn't be properly equipped without his notepad and some handcuffs, would he?
I made the handcuffs by joining some key ring blanks together with jump rings. It's attached with a brad that I covered in silver embossing powder.

The page from his notepad started off as plain white card, cut with the 'Torn Notebook' On the Edge die (Sizzix) and embossed with the 'Notebook' embossing folder (also Sizzix). I've inked the edges with Pumice Stone Distress Ink.

The little pennants on the bottom are cut out of papers from the Snow Princess paper pad
