Crafty Calendar -June Challenge



It's the first Saturday of the month and that means it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Calendar
This month our theme is Father's Day/ For a Male and we're  sponsored by  the brilliant Dr Digi.

.


      Welcome to the brilliantly bizarre brain of Dr. Digi's House of Stamps.  Here you will find monsters,  aliens, odd balls and Dundertons as well as many many more wonderful digital stamps. Our artist and founder cut his teeth in the craft world at the company "Just  Inklined", where his unique digis made a huge impression. We're hoping to continue to entertain and amuse, with our growing catalogue of great value digis with a sense of humour.


The DT were each allowed to pick an image to use for this challenge, I chose Ted and his Shed, which I printed twice and coloured with Copics. I cut Ted from one copy and stuck him on top of the other using  sticky tabs for some depth. The 'frame' was made from strips of wood-patterned DP. I added some extra pots (enlarged from the image) a watering can and some tiny stamped snails (Ted's probably not too keen on the latter...)

We're looking forward to seeing your male- themed cards this month, just click  here to be transported to the main challenge blog where you can enjoy the fabulous creations from my lovely teamies and add your own fabulous creation for us to enjoy!

Have a lovely weekend
Chris
