Dude Time Doodles - July Sketch Challenge

Inside Sentiment


When my friend and co-worker asked me to make her a birthday card to give her husband on his 30th birthday I knew IMMEDIATELY what image I wanted to use! And so I e-mailed Ms Victoria Case and requested to purchase the sexy bar maid Heidi image you see above! And I have to say this card was SO much fun to make! I used the July sketch from the Dude Time Doodles Challenge as my layout. As you may have gathered from their name, they require that the card be for a man in order to participate in their challenges. Well, I can't think of anything guys love more than the "b" word. Beer, of course. What were YOU thinking?!?! They don't mandate that you use their images (hence I was able to enter), but it is encouraged.

Heidi was colored using Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers and then cut out with my Labels Nine Nesties die. I sponged the edges a bit, added an antique brad from Stampin' Up, a couple of rhinestone flourishes, some Liquid Applique to the beer foam, and glossy accents to the beer glass, and Heidi was ready to serve up some frosty birthday greetings! Both sentiments (front and inside) are computer generated.

Thanks for looking and hope you are enjoying your weekend so far! It is a gorgeous day here, and we are off to said friend's husband's party.... Just as soon as I finish MY card to him! Have a fabulous day!
