Dude Time Doodles is being featured in Papers and Pixels e-zine, which was released yesterday (6/15). I'm so happy to say that my tag was one of the cards published in the article. This cutie is being offered as a freebie for 30 days to subscribers of the e-zine. Papers and Pixels is very reasonable (only $1.50 per issue) and is loaded with lots of great stuff. Go check it out for yourself and see. Once you subscribe to the magazine, you will see the code used to acquire this image through the DTD store.
The tag was created using the Sizzix tag die and DSE digital paper. First, I distressed the edges of the tag with Distress Inks (Gathered Twigs, Brushed Corduroy). I also printed the image multiple times so I could add quite a bit of dimension. He's pop dotted off the tag base, his body is pop dotted away from the flag, and his hat is pop dotted off his head (for a total of three layers).
My star "buttons" were created with a Creative Memories punch that I added holes to the center and threaded paper floss through each one. They are colored with Copics, as is the twill ribbon at the bottom. The twill ribbon at the top of the tag was colored with Distress Stains (Antique Linen) and then a Copic on top of that, cut in half, and threaded through the opening. I also pulled a few of the threads for a more distressed look as well.
Copics used: R35, R46, R59, B26, B37 E00, E01, E11, E13, R20 YR12, YR09, E97 YR21, Y21 YG93, YG97, C3 B91, B95, B97 E49, E41, E40, B21
