Ahoy Matey Matt

Dude Time Doodles Inspiration Challenge is here and we're still thinking pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.   Here's a look at the inspiration board:

I decided Ahoy Matey Matt was the perfect spokesperson for this challenge and he's all dolled up in his pinkest finery to show his support.  Creative Inspirations paints were used to highlight his gold earring, silver and gold sword, and his silver mug.  Copic markers were used to color in the rest of the image.  Spellbinders Labels Two was used to cut out the image.  You can really see the shimmer from the CI paints on this photo:

You can also see the brads here well too.  As pink isn't one of my favorite colors, I don't have a lot of pink embellishments laying around.  So I decided to make my own.  I colored an ivory brad with a pink Copic marker and then embossed it with glittery embossing powder.  I think they turned out pretty good.  Don't you?

Now it's your turn to show us your pinks and browns or whatever else inspires you from the inspiration board.  Don't forget to visit the other design team members to see what inspired them; maybe it will inspire you too.  You have one week to upload your projects to the Dude Time Doodles challenge blog.
