Dude Time Doodles Challenge 14 - Colour Inspiration

Welcome to the third Wednesday in the month and to the Dude Time Doodles photo inspiration challenge!

Don't forget to follow the inspiration board below - colours or theme or however it inspires you - and to make your card for a dude! We also want to see some humour but keep it clean!!

I've gone for Hero Henry (has to be one of my favourite designs!) who has been coloured with Promarkers and I've added a little sparkle to his wide smile! The backing paper was an inspired glance towards the wallpaper department whilst mooching around B&Q over one of the recent Bank Holidays. As you can take samples, I did just that and came away with enough to replicate this card 7 more times!

Henry has been added with foam pads so he stands a little proud of his background. And the sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs - I've glittered the edges and layered it onto some shiny red card from my stash. Added black card candy to the corners, inked the edges and the card is complete!

Good luck with the challenge! For more details visit the challenge blog!
