If You've Got It, Flaunt It



Spring colors is the Dude Time Doodles challenge for this First Wednesday of the month.  Here's your inspiration photo and colors.


I wanted to try the Rocker cards that I've been seeing around blogland and found they are very easy to make.   I also wanted to try something a bit different for the base, so I used my Mega Italian Flourish die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  The paper is by Core'dinations, so it's nice and heavy and easily stands on it's own.

Since the die is a bit lacy, I thought the Corset I image from Bonibleaux Designs would be perfect.  I created my own background by airbrushing Copic markers over a mask created from the Canadian Kaleidoscope die by Cheery Lynn Designs onto white cardstock.  For the "lace" behind the Corset, I cut out two additional Canadian Kaleidoscope die cuts, cut each one in half, and folded each of the four pieces accordion style and layered them on top of each other.

I punched holes in the Corset so I could thread the gold elastic cording, which is recycled from an old tag, through the holes to add a more realistic look to the corset.  I also used my gold Spica glitter pen to coordinate the sides of the corset with the cording.  On the inside, I die cut my paper with the Eyelet Square (#4) from Spellbinders.  I heat embossed my sentiment, from I Brake for Stamps, with gold embossing powder and added a Flourish Accent from Spellbinders.

Now it's your turn to show us how you use these Spring Colors.  Just remember, the project needs to be for a Dude and follow the theme.  You don't have to use Bonibleux Designs digital images, but we really like it when you do!  There's lots of great choices at the store.  Check it out for yourself.  You have one week to upload using the linky button at Dude Time Doodles Challenge Blog.  Be sure to also check out what the rest of the Dude and Dudettes created for you.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges: Cheery Lynn Designs (use a doily), Mark's Finest Papers (recycle), Stampendous Impressions (shaped project), SweetStamps (monochromatic).

Copics used: YG97, YG63, YG61, YG11
