Dude Time Doodles August New Release & Blog Hop

Morning All, it is that time of the month for the Dude Time Doodles New Release Blog Hop,

I would like to introduce you to Merle Molar.  As you can see he is a dentist and I don't like the look of his tool.  He is beckoning you to his room for your next lot of treatment!  He looks like a very nice gentle old man but once he gets you in his chair he turns into a demon, loving to inflict pain and taking away your teeth if he can!

I have used a red base card and using one of my favourite Spellbinder dies scalloped ovals cut out Navy blue textured card and hilighted the edges using Dew Drop Brilliance Platinum Planet ink.  I then cut out an oval shape with Merle taking centre stage.  Using Tim Holtz Distress ink Fired Brick distressed the edges.  Using my watercolour pencils I have coloured Merle in and used a Silver Pen to highlight the curl on his tool and his glasses.  I have used Glossy Accents on his glasses which gives the illusion of glass.  For the x-ray of teeth I have printed these of the internet and printed them on acetate.  The film reel is a Spellbinder die I have distressed this lightly with Distress Ink Stormy Sky.  The molars in the bottom right hand corner are from the internet and seemed to be appropriate.  Using My Craft Studio Graphics programme I have typed his name and using one of my Spellbinder label dies cut this out.

I hope you enjoy your blog hopping of our new releases.  There is no start or finish point just enjoy the blog hop.  Now don't forget to leave us all a comment as one of us is the MYSTERY HOSTESS
