Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge #33

     Our challenge this week at Digi Doodle Shop's Best is to create a manly card.  How's this guy for a manly man. LOL  The image is from the Boddy Tot collection at the Digi Doodle Store.  This is Uncle Jesse.  Anybody remember the Dukes of Hazard (I mean the original, not the Jessica Simpson version). hee hee
     Uncle J is colored with watercolor pencils and a few touches of Copics.  This is my first use of my Cosmo Cricket Wanted 6 x 6 pad.  Love these colors!  I roughed up the image mat and added some rawhide or latigo lace and a little piece of stitched edge grosgrain ribbon.

Happy Thursday!

Papers:  Recollections, Cosmo Cricket Wanted, Strathmore watercolor paper
Stamps:  Digi Doodle Shop Uncle Jessie Body Tot, sign from Lily's Creations
Inks+:  Derwent Watercolour pencils, Copics E00, E02, E04, E11, R20, Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Tools:  Nestabilities Classic Ovals large (S4-110)
Miscellaneous:  Recollections brads, ribbon and leather from my stash
