Howie Hotie

Are you ready for the new sketch from Dude Time Doodles?  It's a pretty straight forward one this week.  I flipped it on it's side and used Howie Ho Hot Hot from Bonibleaux Designs.  The inside of this shaped card reads "Hope you have a Smokin' Hot Birthday!"

I used Authentique papers for this card cut with Grand Labels One (#4) from Spellbinders.  If you're unsure how to make a shaped card from your dies, it's really easy.  Fold your paper in half and place the die so that one edge is extended past the fold.  (You may want to tape it down so it won't move.  I usually use the blue painters tape for this.)  Run the die through your die cutting machine as you normally would.   Copics were used to color the image, which I printed twice so I could pop dot portions of the coat (the shoulders are flush with the image).  I added micro marbles to the water puddles for a bit of sparkle and the side pieces were made with the Geo Multi Cutter punch from Creative Memories (I've had this for a number of years and don't believe they still sell it.)

You have one week to upload your sketch creations to the Dude Time Doodles challenge blog.  You can flip the image, use as is, or however you want.  The main rule is that the project has to be for a DUDE.

 Don't forget to visit the rest of the Dudettes for even more inspiration.

Here's the sketch.
