I colored the image with Tombow water-color markers and I used a silver paint pen, from reflections, on the gun to give it some reality. I cut the image and mounted it on brown card stock and then on green card stock . I did faux stitching on the card and the green card stock around the image. This was a sketch that we followed and I chose to use the corners to make it look like a photo instead of the circle or heart. My sentiment (hero) was cut from my cricut and I added glitter for some bling.
