Stylin With Stew

Whooo Hoo! I'm so excited to announce that I'm the Guest Designer for the month of August at Dude Time Doodles! I absolutely love Boni's images! I have a quirky sense of humor, so these are right up my alley! I'm so thrilled to get the opportunity to work with these fabulous images as well as the entire Dude Time Doodles team! Thank you so much, Dude Time Doodles, for having me as your Guest Designer this month!

Dude Time Doodles has a fun challenge for you, starting today! A Sketch challenge! I love love love sketches because they give me fun new ideas for my cards and help me think outside the box.

Let's see how much YOU love sketches! We'd love to have you join us at Dude Time Doodles and show your interpretation of the sketch. We are being sponsored by Bonibleaux Designs, who's offering one lucky winner one image of their choice! Boni's images are perfect for male cards and there's something for everyone, in her fantabulous store! Haven't been to the store?! Oh my, then you are missing out! Hurry over and check out all the cool images to choose from! You won't be disappointed!

Oh, and be sure you play along with us in our sketch challenge, too! Get busy creating and then rush on over to Dude Time Doodles and link up your creation to play along with us!

And now, I just have to show you my first project as Guest Designer for Dude Time Doodles.

I've used the sketch from this week's Dude Time Doodles challenge. The image is Stylin Stew, by
Dude Time Doodles. Stew is colored with Promarkers. He's a special kinda guy, so I went with a fun color combo for his clothing, and added some sparkle to his "threads" with a clearstar gelly roll pen. Oh, and how's this for a fun mix of patterns and papers?! All papers are from my stash, as is the sheer green ribbon. I've used a couple star shaped buttons that I recycled off an old shirt that has been thrown away. (Gotta recycle! Go Green!)
