It's Inspiration Week at Dude Time Doodles and this is the inspiration photo. The challenge is to make something related to a Wedding or Anniversary using this photo to inspire you.
When I first learned about Dude Time Doodles, two images really grabbed my attention. One was a great fishing lure (click here) and the other was a wonderful ice bucket filled with bottles and cans(click here).
I have so many avid fishermen in my family that I could have used either image in this challenge. In the end, I went with the ice bucket!
I printed out the image twice and used one as my base panel which I cut out and backed in black using Spellbinders fancy oval dies. I then fussy cut the bucket and celebratory items and colored them with Copics. I then covered the whole bucket with Tim Holtz Rock Candy Distress Stickles so it would like it had a layer of ice. I liked that look so I put some Diamond and Crystal Stickles on the ice to make it look more realistic. My papers are from SU!, Creative Memories (the silver paper on one of the bg panels) and the GCD Paris Nights Stack.
I can tell this image will be one of my go-to images in the future - I can see it filled with so many things like: hearts, fish, candy corn, dirt, flowers...
You don't have to use a Dude Time Doodles image to enter the challenge (although it would be great if you did), and everyone needs another wedding or anniversary card!
Celebratory Hugz to all!!!
