Daddy's Little Helper

Woohooo.... It's finally here!  Today is the launch of the first All Dressed Up Challenge and we have an easy peasy theme this time with Anything Goes.  Anything Goes but you must use an All Dressed Up image on your entry and there are a couple of freebies provided on the Challenge Blog.  I chose the Daddy's Little Helper image from the All Dressed Up Etsy Shop and used Copics to colour him:
Jeans:  B97, B95, B93, B91
Hat:  YR24, YR23, YR21, Y26 and when finished, I dipped a loopy cloth into blender solution and dabbed it down to give a bit of texture.
Dirt:  I used Aleen's Sparkle Snow and when dry, I added Copic E99, E97, E95, Y3.  It looks a lot more orange than it actually is but I should have used more of the brown tones.
Dies:  MFT Die-Namics Fishtail Banner
Sentiment:  PaperTreyInk Tiny Tags 2
Paper:  Authentique's Lavish from the Hope Collection, the cork is from a 6x6 DCWV package
Brads:  Karen Foster's Crazy Coil Brads
Be sure to pop by the blog and then on to visit the DT projects... there's a lot of creativity and talent out there!
 Now I want to take a quick moment and show some Fridge Art which our 5 year old granddaughter Abi created with one of the images from the I Love My Puppy set.  She does get to use the special markers (Copics) when she visits and she loves flowers... I laugh because both of these pups have some of my flower stash on them.

First I'm commenting on Abi's card! What a darling creation! She is taking after mommy and grandma for sure and it looks as though she's starting to fill those shoes nicely!

Now Mar, what can I say. Your card is fabulous as always! So glad you joined this venture!

You've coloured him beautifully a gorgeous card. And love your granddaughters toox

Right now I am laughing because Abi's art work is so cute and happy. She definitely knows where she wants her flowers!!
You know I love your cards Marilyn.
Beautifully and perfectly designed every time. When I was taking art history classes at UNCA, I heard this statement - "the first rule in art is kiss - keep it simple sugar!"
You figured this out a long time ago didn't you kid!!!!!

Kelly Neis said...

Well, let's start with Abi's gorgeous work, shall we? I love the colours she has used. Fab job. I also love your ADU card. Super cute and the texture on the hat looks great. It was soooo hard for me to resist applying for the DTCall, Murphy's Law, some things have changed. I shall have to wait for the next one now! Pfft. Have a delish weekend. X
