Something different from me.....a CAS take on a theme

Hello again,

Today's post is a CAS (clean and simple) make!  A nice change for me from my designs of late and I really enjoyed the challenge.

I have used an image from Polkadoodles called DIY Dave, and he can be found on the Work and Play 1 collection.
The collection is available as:
Work and Play 1, complete collection download (great if you are out of the UK)
Work and Play 1 CD collection (and if you add a few other bits to your basket deliver over £20 is free!)
DIY Dave Clear Stamp! (fabulous if you love stamping)

Here is my design:

I adore him!  He is actually a Birthday card for my son, Jake (bad Mummy lol) and he loved it :D

I have coloured Dave using my Graph'it Marker Pens and used the following combo's:
Skin: 4115, 4155, 4180, 3120, 6150, 4145
Hair: 1230, 1250, 1280, 3110
Clothes and hat: 7110, 7115, 7125
with touches of 9500, 9501 and 9502 and 9400 for the shadowing

The paint can is made from thick aluminium foil (from a party tray) and the idea for a 3D decorating materials was not mine!  I was inspired by a fellow crafter, who has the most amazing design using this image - Claire Boelema and her blog can be found HERE (a very talented lady xx)
I added rolled paper for 'wallpaper' and done spiders web and he presto we have a CAS card!

Here are the close-ups:
