Tom Turkey's Deadline

Tom Turkey's a little stressed out!  He doesn't want you to miss the first sketch challenge over at Dude Time Doodles!! This dude is a new release digital stamp by Bonibleaux Designs and I printed him out twice so I could pop dot the body.  Here's a close up:

Copic markers were used to give him life and color.  I also used the new Grand Calibur machine and Grand Labels Four Nestabilities by Spellbinders to cut the base of the card.  These new larger size dies are perfect for creating uniquely shaped card bases (plus lots more).  Labels Four (the regular size) was also used to die cut the background paper behind Tom.  It's really hard to see in the photo, but I did a bit of resist embossing and used Distress inks and a spritz of Glimmer Mist to make this.  I completed my card by adding a bit of paper floss, my sentiment, and a cute button.
Copics: R37, R39,YR04   B95, B99   E08, E09   Y17, Y19   YR20, E00, E01   I left them in the grouping that I used them to color different sections.

Now it's your turn and here is your sketch.  Twist it, flip it, use as is to create your artwork  You are not required to use BDD images although it would make all of us on the Design Team really, really happy and giggle a lot if you did!   The card MUST be a masculine themed card; you can use humor, innuendo, be a little naughty, sarcastic, but it has got to be for a DUDE!  And last, but not least, be sure to use the InLinkz button to submit your wonderful creation.

Glitterbabe's Greetings is graciously sponsoring our very first challenge with a special prize package of FOUR digis of your choice from her Store for one RANDOM winner.

So be sure to head on over to Dude Time Doodles  and link up your projects with the InLinkz button.  The Top Blog winner and Top Three winners will be announced on Dude Time Doodles Challenge Blog.   You have until the 19th to strut your stuff (that's what Tom Turkey is going to be doing on Nov 26).

While you're already there submitting your project, be sure to check out the left-hand side and see all the up-coming events.  Put'um on your calendar; that way you won't miss a single exciting thing.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!
