* CRAFT Challenge GDT: Right Shed Fred



I am delighted to be joining C.R.A.F.T. Challenge Blog for a month of Guest DT posts. Thank you to Jo and the C.R.A.F.T. Team for inviting me.

The challenge theme this week is MASCULINE and the sponsors are Ike's Art and Dr Digi.

I used a Dr, Digi image called Right Shed Fred.

I coloured the image with Copic markers and fussy cut it. Doctor Digi has the best 'funny' digis - head over to the store to have a look around

The background was made by stamping with a stencil. I smooshed Distress Oxides direct from the pad onto the stencil (#95 Sunrise from AALL  Create), spritzed with water and stamped it onto white card. This is one of my favourite techniques for making backgrounds - very quick and easy and usually I get good results. I added some script stamping using a very old Inkylicious stamp and inked around the edges of the background.

The image is popped on foam tape and I added some die cut leaves , cut from some left over painted card that was lying in my scrap box.

The sentiment was stamped with a free stamp set I got with a paper crafting magazine.

You can enter the C.R.A.F.T. challenge twice - we hope to see you there.

That's all for now. I'm back next Wednesday with another challenge inspiration card for the C.R.A.F.T. blog.

Thanks for stopping by today.
