Dude Time Doodles Challenge 8 - Photo Inspiration

Welcome to another Dude Time Doodles challenge! This week it is an inspiration challenge from the photo below. Our rules are really simple - make your project for a bloke - funny, sarcastic or witty just as long as it is publishable! And link up through the Dude Time Doodles Challenge blog!

I've used Cowpoke Cal along with a sentiment and he's been coloured with Promarkers. I've used a kraft card blank as it was perfect for the cowboyish colours along with DCWV Retro Stack 6x6 papers.

For all the shapes I've used my nesties and then inked the edges and doodled a fine line to finish.
Plus a bit of obligatory rootin' tootin' string! Good luck with the challenge and I hope you can join us! You don't need to use a Dude Time Doodles image, but if you do it will really make us smile! The challenge is open until Tuesday 22 February evening - US time.
