Fab n Funky Guest Designer...

At the end of February, I was lucky enough to win over at Fab 'n' Funky Challenges and the lovely Judith asked if I would like to be Guest Designer for a challenge...and naturally, I said yes!  So I'm here today to share some inspiration for the start of this week's challenge which is 'One for the Boys'...

As part of my prize, I was able to choose 5 digi's from Kathryne's StampArt range at Whimsy Stamps and so I chose this one to go with today's theme...
...This is Charlie Fishing on a Rock and I've paired him with Prima's Bohemian Bamboo papers and once again, one of Jen's brilliant sketches - this one is #115...
...I coloured Charlie with my Letraset family and here's the colour list I used
Skin - Blush, Dusky, Sunkissed Pink, Coral
Hair - Sandstone, Caramel, Cocoa, Walnut
Hat - Pastel Beige, Soft Khaki, Khaki, Red, Crimson, Burgundy
Waistcoat - Pear, Moss, Olive
T Shirt - Soft Aqua, Duck Egg, Surf Blue, Red, Crimson, Burgundy
Trousers - Cloud, Denim, Cadet Blue
Frog - Meadow, Leaf, Bright Green
Fishing Rod - Sandstone, Caramel, Cocoa
Rocks - Cool Grey 1, 3 & 4
Grass -Lime Zest, Pear, Moss Olive
Water - Sea Mist, Dolphin Blue, Blue Grey 1
...I kept the embellishments quite minimal and just used some different width grosgrain in charcoal grey and navy and threaded the thinner ribbon through an eyelet.  Of course, a polka dot button managed to find it's way on there too! ;-)  I went without a sentiment on the front of this one and just printed one on the insert inside.
I hope you can find the time to join in with the brilliant 'One for the Boys' challenge at Fab n Funky this week and thanks for dropping by to see me! A huge thank you to Judith for asking me to be Guest Designer this week and to all the DT for their fabulous inspiration each and every week!
Crafty hugs,
