Lucky Strike

It's that time of the month.  Of course I mean Dude Time Doodles Inspiration Challenge.  Here is the inspiration board plus an added little twist - use dies or punches (die cutting machines qualify too).  Our sponsor is Stamp by Step and the winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to the store.

Lucky Strike, a Bonibleaux Designs digital image from the Dude Time Doodles store, wanted to play in this challenge.  Since we needed to use dies (one of my favorite things to do on a card), I decided to create a scene with different dies.  After coloring Lucky with Copic markers and fussy cutting him out, he's standing on a pitcher's mound created with Spellbinders Deckled Ovals.  His background was created using Spellbinder's Wonky Rectangles and the sun and the cloud are die-namics from My Favorite Things.

The patterned paper behind the scene is actually a page from an old book that I inked up with my Distress Stains to coordinate with the image. The card base is from Core'dinations.

Now it's your turn to be inspired.  You don't have to use a Dude Time Doodles image, but we really appreciate it when you do and remember, it's got to be for a dude.  You have one week to upload your creation to the Dude Time Doodles challenge blog.  Be sure to check out the awesome creations from the rest of the Dude and Dudettes.

Copics used: YR00, YR01, YR02, YR14    BG01, BG02, BG09    E11, E13, E15    E35, E39    E40, E41
