Will You Marry Me?

Time for a new Inspirational Challenge from Dude Time Doodles.  The theme this week is Weddings/Anniversaries.

Will - You Marry Me? is doing the honors this week and he's popping the question on a swing card, one of the new flip it dies from Sizzix.  And here's the flip side of Will.  He can't believe his luck, so he's planning something spectacular!  I used a Nellie Snellen die (Eastern Rectangle) to cut out my computer generated sentiment.

After die cutting the card base, I ran it through the Mystic M-Bossibilites folder from Spellbinders.  I have to tell you, these are pretty amazing.  I couldn't believe the detail I got and it's pretty easy to see it in the photo too.  I'll definitely be purchasing more of these!

Will is colored with Copic markers and the image was printed twice so I could add pop dots under the jewelry box and his hand.  The "diamond" on the ring is a Swarovski crystal that I received as a gift from someone in Germany.  It looks like it could be the real thing.  Glossy Accents were added to his tears of joy and chalk was used for the background.

Now it's your turn to create something for a wedding or anniversary.  Remember, it must be for a Dude.  You have one week to upload your project and be in the running for the prize sponsored by Pattie's Creations.  You can enter as may times as you wish, as long as you don't back link and each one is created for a guy in mind.  Head on over to the Dude Time Doodles challenge blog  to upload your card and while you're there, be sure to check out what the rest of the Dude and Dudettes have made to help inspire you.

Copics used: E50, E51, E93, BV20    C4, C5, C7    N5, N7, N9    BG000, BG01, BG05    T2, T4, T7, T8, T9
