Good Morning all!
It's Wednesday & it's time for a new challenge at Dude Time Doodles!
I just couldn't be bothered to make a card this week!!!
Actually, I needed a bottle gift bag & when I took one out of the cupboard,
I thought it looked sooooo bare, I wanted to do something about it!
So here it is!
The Challenge at Dude Time Doodles this week is an
Here's the photograph!
As you can see we'd like you to use the photo/colour for your inspiration
& Use Die Cuts, Punches or Both!
I used both!
Before I forget, just to make it a bit more interesting for you,
we are sponsored for this week's challenge by
I used a piece of patterned paper which has been hanging about in
my stash forever! I'm trying to use some stuff up so I can get more!
It's a digital paper but I'm not sure where from!
I cut the A4 sheet in half, vertically & then cut a strip off to
make it a better length. I rounded the corners with a punch,
The image I have used is
Such a great image for any occasion I feel!
I made the sentiment in my graphics programme using a free font called
Pinch Drunk which you can get here!
Next, Iadded the image to the centre.
I then cut it out with a Nellie Snellen die & matted it on to a
scalloped circle which was cut out with a nestie!
I forgot to say I coloured the image with my trusty promarkers.
Look how dirty that water is!!!
To mimic the bubbles I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on
some white card stock. I rounded the corners with my punch
then added some buttons.
I actually used my hot glue gun to stick down the buttons!
I've only had it since August last year but this is the first time
I've had a chance to play with it!
I have to say it's my new favourite tool!!
I added a little square of the embossed card stock & a button
to the label on the bag!
The buttons are recycled!
A friend of mine did a favour for a neighbour of hers &
in return the neighbour handed in a huge box of buttons,
some are new & some have been taken off of garments.
My friend was unsure what to do with them & brought them to me!
If anyone would like some buttons, just pop in & collect them!!!
