Dude Time Doodles Inspiration Challenge

Thank you for visiting my blog today.
Today is the inspirational challenge over at my favourite place Dude Time Doodles
 Your challenge "should you choose to accept" is to use the color / photo inspiration and make your card or project.

For my interpretation I have used Conrad Construction.

I have used a black based card, used lipstick, electric and brick coloured card for matting and layering.
The texted mat I have created using My Craft Studio Papercraft Library Men-y Happy Returns CD utilising the text feature to print words to do with construction and placed a "hard hat" into the design.  As I printed this onto white cardstock I distressed this with "Tea Dye" to give it a "dirty look", as you know construction work can be very dirty!  The wording "smooth operator" is part of the saying that come with Conrad.

I have coloured Conrad in using my watercolour pencils and have gone around the stamped area with a fine black pen to give appearance of faux stitching.

I hope you visit Dude Time Doodles today and link up your project for the challenge.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon

I love to hear your comments.
