Stamps R Us Challenge #

Today's challenge over at Stamps R Us the challenge is to create a card that's MASCULINE.  Dude Time Doodles, very appropriately, is sponsoring us for this challenge - SO many fun, fun, funny digital images to choose from.

I picked this image of the guy tinkering on his car - "If it Ain't broke, Take it apart and fix it ANYway" just had me laughing out loud.  So true of some of our darling men out there.

I colored the image with Copics and added some glossy accents to the lights.  Because I wanted to keep it masculine, I kept the frills and embellishments to a minimum, leaning on this corrugated paper with jute and a notebook border punch for the sentiment.

Had fun with this one - if you look at the rest of my stuff, it's all pretty and frilly.  Head over to Stamps R Us to submit your challenge card and be sure to check out Dude Time Doodles - SOOO Many to choose from!

Thanks for popping in again!
