DTD February New Release Blog Hop

 I'm so pleased to bring you Hammock Harold today from Dude Time Doodles New Releases.  What a great guy and so many sentiments easily fit this image.  I chose one by Create with TLC

Poor Harold, his hammock has definitely seen better days; it's all frayed and wearing out but he can't find another red one!  I used Copic markers to color this image and Distress inks (Broken China, Tumbled Glass, Brushed Corduroy, Forest Moss, Bundled Sage) to create my sponged background.  For added depth, I pop dotted the top of the image and left the bottom flush along the background. 

Here is a close up, so you can see the netting I used for the hammock and how I pop dotted part of it.  The sentiment is attached with a brad, so you can move it around some if you want.


Copics used: E50, E51, E53, R20    G17    C3, C5    R35, R37, R39, RV99    YR16, YR12, YR00, R11    B24, B26, TY16    B0000, B23, B24, B26    E57, E59    Y13, Y15
Other ingredients: eyelets, netting, brad, pop dots

What a really great card! I so remember my Dad resting in our hamock growing up. His beer didn't have a lemon slice though... Oh! I guess this guy was drinking iced tea... (:-)

Shelly Schmidt said...

Oh what a cool background for your awesome card- love the mesh hammock- your dud is really resting in style!

Boni said...

Loooooove the netting on the hammock!! What a great 3D project LOL Harold has it made in the shade. I think he really should lay off the Long Island Iced Teas though. when he tries to get out of that hammock someone may need to dial 9-1-1!! LOL
