Archie Visits the Villages in Florida

Rick St. Dennis
I couldn't wait to put this Rick St. Dennis image of Archie into a scene on one of my cards! My husband Sandy and I took a road trip to the Villages an active adult retirement community, here in Florida. We were interested in seeing the Eisenhower Regional recreational Center located in the Village of Brownwood. Besides the usual activity rooms, courts and pool, the building houses a large collection of military items and memorabilia donated by Villagers. Many items on display had belonged to Dwight D. Eisenhower, whose portraits hang on the wall at the recreation center named in his honor.

I colored Archie with Prismacolor Pencils and merged the image with a color sketched background of a village scene by my husband Sandy Brooke, using the Craft Artist 2 program.

I hope you plan to enter our challenge at Crafty Girlz, sponsored by Rick St. Dennis.
