The big build up!

This week at Craft Your Passion  the theme is Occupational Hazards.So  any projects featuring a job … builder,plumber,fireman,nurse etc. are required.We have the fabulous Dude Time Doodles as our sponsor.So head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

I had the pleasure of working with Conrad Construction from Dude Time Doodles and coloured him with Copic Ciao Markers.Going with the building/construction theme I decided to make a fitting background.I cut some bricks from this fab paper from DCWV  The Mini Stack 3 and scored a strip of grey card scored at intervals shading with grey Copic pen adhered to some mortar coloured card.I added some screw top brads and these fun metal letters.After fussy cutting Conrad I stuck him on using Pinflair Glue Gel for extra dimension.

Some challenges this is for :
Alphabet Challenge : Q is for Quick
Fairy Fun Friday : Masculine
Creatalicious : Anything Goes
Do You Stack Up : Silver
I Brake for Challenges : Backgrounds 
Papercraft Star : Anything Goes
The Squirrel & the Fox : Anything Goes
Stamp with Fun :  Anything Goes

Thanks for looking
