Dude Time Doodles Challenge 20 - Photo Inspiration & Sporty

It's the third Wednesday of the month (where does the time go??!) and so its the colour theme challenge for Dude Time Doodles! This week we also want to see you make it not only for a dude (young or old!) but also to have a sporty theme. All the rules and how to enter can be found on the challenge blog.

I've used Rocco Soccer as my image and his ball ('scuse the pun!) which was a freebie offered last month and now is available to buy in the store - snooze and you loose! He's been coloured with Promarkers and in the new season Manchester United football strip as I've been asked to make a 50th Birthday card for a bloke called Trev who is mad about Man Utd!

Rocco boings around on a spring although his football is well and truly attached to the card. Football pitch is from Funky Hand - Craft The Year Away cd and I've enlarged it to fit on an A5 sized card, and also printed it with one of the papers from the same cd. I've added a slightly darker line with a Promarker around the edge, printed the sentiment using the word elements, also from the same cd and the star button (I snipped the shank off) is from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Cards For Men: Anything Goes
Sparkles Forum Challenges: One For The Boys
If The Shoe Fits: Green

  • Image: Dude Time Doodles, coloured with Promarkers
  • All Other Printed elements: Craft The Year Away cd from Funky Hand
  • Star: My stash
