Choo Choo Charlie

June 27th 2012
It's the last Wednesday of the month which means "New Release" time at Dude Time Doodles & a Blog Hop via the Challenge Blog & DT Members! You should have arrived here from Tammy's Blog and then be heading over to see what Anne has made with the new designs!


As you can see I've used the new Choo Choo Charlie image - I thought he was perfect for my love of vintage style so I've coloured him with earthy Copics and used Clear Distress Crackle over the top to give hima an aged look - I did the same with the vintage steam train. I added a postcard background, collage tickets, little letters and a great watch charm to finish it all off.


I'm also entering Charlie at Everybody Art Challenge in their Monochromatic Brown Challenge. And Party Time Tuesdays has an anything goes challenge - perfect for Charlie too!!
