Would you like a Jelly Baby?

Time for a little From The Heart inspiration, using a Timelord!

Those of you who are of a certain age, like me, or any die-hard Dr Who fans, will instantly understand the title for this post as soon as you see my card today, lol.
Like many of my generation, Tom Baker was 'our' Dr Who, he played the 4th incarnation of the role for most of the 70's. His Doctor is best known for his instantly recognisable voice, his long scarf & hat combo, and his love of Jelly Babies.

So whilst colouring Birdbrain Winter Scarf for my blog hop card last week, I was thinking how much the image reminded me of that famous scarf, and how cool would it be to colour this Birdbrain as Dr Who. . .

So, I drew a hat using my paint program and printed it out along with the Birdbrain. After colouring them both,  I snipped along the brim of the hat so that I could glue the 2 together.
Here's what they look like from the back...

I needed to snip off the top of the Birdbrain's head so that it fit nicely beneath the hat.

Next, I needed a TARDIS, so I decided to make one. I started by using some old Ballet Blue card stock by Stampin Up, and cut out all the pieces I needed.
I coloured all these pieces with black and midnight blue promarkers to get the right colours and shading as I don't have any tardis blue similar coloured card at the moment.
I made the signs, windows, and top light, adding detail with my markers.
Then I just glued it all together. Job done :)

I used a Tim Holtz 'blueprint' embossing folder on another piece of Ballet Blue, and then sponged over the design afterwards using a few inkpads. I mounted this piece onto a piece of white cardstock which has had the scarf pattern replicated around the edge using the same promarkers that I used to colour the image.

I also drew the little paper bag of jelly babies, lol.
