Dude Time Doodles Challenge 5 - Sketch

It's time for a Dude Time Doodles challenge! The format of the challenges has changed slightly and every one will now commence on a Wednesday. So:

First Wednesday = Sketch Challenge
Second Wednesday = Guest Designer spot up for grabs
Third Wednesday = Inspiration Challenge
Fourth Wednesday = New Releases and Blog Hop

The new store is now up and running with your purchases being available to download immediately after payment - go and have a look!

As this is the first Wednesday of the month, it is the sketch challenge:

You can twist it, rotate it and do what you like as long as the sketch is still recognisable and you have made a male themed card - easy peasy! The challenge runs until 11 January - good luck!

This challenge is sponsored by Raindrop Echo Designs who is offering three great prizes to the winners!

I've used left over papers (see how good I am being!) from a previous project and they are the Big Dots Mini download from Pink Petticoat (I don't think this download is available anymore as I could not find it on the website) plus some very shiny silver card from my stash.

The image is Jose Hosed and he's not looking too good! I've coloured him with Promarkers and added some string with knots in as that is just the way he is feeling at the moment! Large brad from my stash.

I've added some dots around the edge of the image and card plus some inking. Hope you can join in with the challenge - don't forget to follow the sketch and make a male themed card! Good luck!

Come back next Wednesday when there is a chance to be a Guest Designer on Dude Time Doodles - you get a free image to use to make a creation and then the Guest Designer is picked from the entries!

  • Papers: Big Dots Mini Download from Pink Petticoat
  • Image: Jose Hosed from Bonibleaux Designs, coloured with Promarkers
  • Everything else: My stash
