Last Call Leonard - DTD New Release Blog Hop


It's that time again - the Dude Time Doodles New Release Blog Hop and I've chosen to showcase Last Call Leonard.  The sentiment that I've paired Leonard with is from Create with TLC.


I'll bet you'll never guess what the "mirror" behind the bar was made with.  It's the inside of my coffee container bag.  (I've heard you can use alcohol inks on them too, but I haven't had a chance to try that yet).  I thought it made a pretty good mirror.  What do you think?  Leonard is colored with a combination of Copic markers and Creative Inspiration paints. I've highlighted several areas that were colored with Copics with the paint (parts of the bar, the whiskey in the glass, his eyes) and I painted directly to color his tie, the whiskey bottle, and the swirls around the sentiment.

The Blog Hop doesn't have a starting or ending point; so no matter where you hop, you're at the right place.  Just keep on hopping until you've gone full circle and hopped to each of us.  Don't forget to leave each of us some love along the way.   All New Releases will be available in the STORE at 10am EST.  

You should have arrived here at Anne-Made directly from Dude Time Doodles blog.  From here, you can hop on over to Miss Janet's and see what she has in store for you (you'll love it!).  Here's the list of Dudette's in case you get so dazzled by all our artwork and you loose your place.  Also, please give a great big welcome to the newest Dudettes to our design team family: Janet, Michelle, NanaConnie, Dawn, and Linda.  Don't forget to leave everyone some love - you never know who will be the mystery hostess with the goodies!

Anne, What a great job on that mirror! I wouldn't have known what it was but it's certainly effective. Every bartender must work in front of a mirror! I'm going to start looking at my coffee bag coverings differently now. lol

HA! LOVE that you are recycling in your art! I do this all the time. I save tags, caps, whatever "trips my trigger" and reuse! Good for you! Oh and make mine a DOUBLE!
