Keith Keystone


Get ready for the Dude Time Doodles New Release Blog Hop.  There are some really fun images that will be in the DTD store by 10am.  Meet Keith Keystone, a cop for all times.  When I first saw him, it reminded me of those old Keystone Cops silent movies (granted it was WAY before my time, but still fun to see in re-runs).  When my friend from England saw him, she said it reminded her of the way the "coppers" dress over there.  So whatever Keith reminds you of, he's definitely a keeper.

I found a Keystones Cops image that I printed and distressed with Distress Inks.  I colored Keith Keystone with Copic markers, fussy cut him out, and pop dotted him in front of my background.  I adhered this layer to some Lost and Found paper by Tim Holtz, added some Film Strip Ribbon, a page from an old book (my recycled item), and a bit of Stampendous Mica Fragments to complete the silent movie genre look.  All of this is adhered to my Kraft card base, that was lightly distressed with Distress Inks.

You should have come from Dude Time Doodles, but no worries if you didn't.  The blog hop is a circular blog hop, meaning there is no correct beginning.  Just keep going around until you have visited all of the Dude/Dudettes.  Be sure to leave a comment with each of us, as one of us is the Mystery Host.  The winner will be chosen from comments left with that Mystery Host.   Your next stop will be Ruth and here's the list of everyone, just in case.

Wonderful card Anne. The background is perfect and I'm happy to see the filmstrip ribbon as I just saw it at Michael's but it was in a container and you couldn't see what it looked like. Awesome card and congrats on your new post!
