All aboard......it's time for the Dude Time Doodles New Release Blog Hop. Choo Choo Charlie will help guide your way along the hop (and he'll be available in the store by 10am EST). I have to say that Charlie is near and dear to my heart as he was my suggestion for a new image. I love trains and always have. My mom tells a story of when I was two and she had to take me to see the local train come through the town that my grandmother lived in every time we went to visit. Any chance I get, I still love riding trains, especially old steam trains.
Charlie is colored in Copics and fussy cut out. The railroad sign is clip art that I printed and cut out with a Spellbinders die (Grand Circles #2). The train track on the side is an older Sizzix Decorative Strip that I've had for quite a while. The background was created using a stippling brush and Distress Inks (Salty Ocean, Pumice Stone, Tea Dye).
The New Release Blog Hop is a circular hop, meaning there is no correct beginning. Just continue going around until you've visited all the Dude/Dudettes. Be sure to leave a comment with each of us as one of us is the Mystery Host. Your next stop is Ruth. Here's the complete blog hop list, just in case.
