TGF's DADS & DUDES CONTEST!

It's Fathers Day today, and The Greeting Farm has a fun little challenge going on for all the Dads and Dudes in your lives....  My husband is off at the races, because he's got commitments to that, but my son was here today for a little while, and decided he'd like to play along with this challenge.  BUT ONLY IF he could use eyelets, even though he called them the metal button things...  LOL

So he decided to try to make it into this contest, and thought he'd case the 3rd example.  Probably because he wanted a mixture of paper colors.  Okay, he picked the papers, not exactly what I would have picked, but hey, it's HIS entry, not mine, right? 

Soooooo, he used, the Digi Drummer Boy from The Greeting Farm,... I should have known he'd pick that one.
And when all was said and done, he wrote "Mega Doug" on the drums.... what a typical 15 year old....  I think that is his nickname at school or something or his name on Xbox or something.... I don't know, but all the kids always call him that.

So here he is, working away at his card for this challenge.


I don't believe I've ever seen YELLOW drums, but if he says so... then Yellow it is....

There he is, FINALLY getting to use those metal button thingys.  ha ha....  He added some bright green star brads too.  But no bling at all....  This dude is a rocker, and he's not at all concerned with bling.

He asked me how to make a smeared ink effect on the edges, so I showed him on scrap, and then he did it with the image.  Not to bad I'd say....

This is the finished product.  What do you think?

For his sake, I hope he wins, I'm sure he'll feel pretty good about his work then.  He always thinks he can't be creative, but I think he did a great job.

OMG your son has done a wonderful job with the challenge. I don't think I could get my 4 or 5yr old to get it to look quite so good. Your son is as talented as you are.
