DudeTime Doodles--Inspiration Challenge--No Cards

WOOTY WOOT!!! Can you believe we are in for another challenge at DudeTime Doodles....for this challenge you make anything but a card and made for a Dude.....and you take your inspiration from the photo below or the projects that we've made over at DTD.........ENJOY!!!!!!!!

inspiration photo...when I looked at this photo I instantly thought, look at all those guys...and what better way to portray the male gender by making something that they love to do......drink beer....I needed something for my Brother-inlaw's 40th birthday in a couple of months.....

and here's what I came up with...it's a bag, money holder and a card....I used these way cool images from Bonibleaux Designs.......Ahoy Matey Set and the Ice Bucket..... here's the card....I used the ice bucket...colored it in with distress inks added a label from Spellbinder's and used s piece of printed transparency (unknown)....paper is from My Mind's Eye.. I love how the print on the paper at the top really goes along with the theme...lol.... and here's the little bag....I just made one out of cardstock, added the pattern paper , same as above.....Ahoy Matey I colored in with Marvy Markers.....I also stamped a Tim Holtz stamp onto shrink plastic and made a charm......
here's a closer view of the charm and the transparency over top of the ice bucket...
and here's the little money holder I concocted using a paper mache band-aid....here I used the other image in the Ahoy Matey set....what better way to start the evening out but with some drink money...lol....same piece of transparency and pattern paper...I used Tim Holtz metal numbers and metal door handle....
here's what it looks like as you pull the handle up.....more Tim Holtz products...and the spool that I wrapped the money onto is one I had from ribbon....love those little spools.....
here's it all the way out....I added more chain and a guitar pic that shows a different kind of picture when moved.....love that little find from the local 7-11 store....and another one of those metal flip tabs from Karen Foster....
just a closer view......
and here's the whole sha-bang..I wanted this to make noise inside so he would have no idea...lol....look at the skeleton guitar pick.....then look at the one below.......woot woot!!!! lol....
looks like he's even enjoying a beer....lol....
********************
Well thank's for stopping in today.....make sure you check out what the rest of the Dudette's came up with.....and then join in....what does that inspiration photo say to you.....Hugs from Charm City.....
