Digi Doodle Challenge - Thursday 11/11/10

Over at the Digi Doodle Challenge this week the topic is "don't forget our men" ie a manly project.  I decided to use this lovely boat image which I coloured in with Copics/Promarkers.  The background for the boat ie the sea and sky I have made myself with torn paper and using my new ink dusters and Tim Holtz's Faded Jeans and Tumbled Glass distress ink pads.  I have used the Inkylicious card which I also bought at the NEC along with the ink dusters and it makes it easier to get the ink on evenly.  The striped backing paper is from a Daisy and Dandelion paper pad which I have had for a few years now.  I have torn some other pieces of paper on top of this to replicate more waves.  The card is finished off with two tags from a Hot of the Press book I got for my birthday which have been tied with some black raffia, a sentiment I had left over from a card and some card candy.

This card also fits the following challenges:

Lollipop Crafts - Birthdays
Craft Your Passion - Double anything on card - I've chosen two tags
Lexi's Creations - Anything goes
Digital Tuesday - Use your never used stash - for me it's my Daisy and Dandelion paper
Top Tip Tuesday - Use an image/sentiment - MY TOP TIP - if you struggle or think you might struggle using a brayer consider using ink dusters as I have found them a dream to start using and with some practice I should get even better
Sisterhood of Crafters - Birthday card
Pixie Dust - All about the men/boys in our lives
Pattie's Creations - Birthday card
Stamp Something - Anything goes digi
Crafty Catz - Paper tearing.
