Dude Time Doodles Challenge - Shades of Blue

Morning! We had a rather good day karting yesterday - Samuel, (since last week) is now the proud owner of his own kart and of course we had a full day testing it! I took loads of photos so will show then at some point (my Dad's camera so I don't have the software to download them).  Or, if you want to see what it looks like when going at around 58 miles per hour with your behind a few inches from the tarmac, have a look at their blog - Samuel and Jacob Kart Racing!

Anyway!  Time for a new Dude Time Doodles challenge and the theme this week is:

Shades of Blue

I've used Duck the Snowball Warrior and coloured him with Promarkers and a little stickles.  I made the card base myself with my trusty compass, inked the edges and then added a faux running stitch (I feel it keeps the image from 'falling off the edge'!)

I've added some shiny silver confetti snowflakes with foam pads to the card for a bit of bling!

Hope you can join in with the challenge - for more details on how to enter just pop over to the challenge blog!

  1. Ruth, this is fabulous! Love the comment about the stitching. I collect snowpeople so this one is extra special to me. I don't think anyone will be messing with him either - he looks like he means business and he has a bunch of ammo stockpiled - LOL! Wonderful coloring and feel to this one. Hugz!

  2. Fabulous card Ruth, wonderful colouring of Duck I like the stitching and the snowflakes.
