June Inspirational Challenge - Make it Monochromatic

WOO HOO!!

What a great couple of weeks we've had!  A new release with wild and crazy images from Bonibleaux Designs.  A fantastic sketch challenge with Tammy that netted an awesome turn out and a great prize from Technique Junkies!!  And Kurt the Graduate ushered in a new Guest Designer!!  Whew, we've been busy!!

Has anyone else noticed?  We are edging closer and closer to 200 followers!! 

It's Cleota and I'm back with drums snaring to ring in our June Inspirational Challenge.  This week, I've added a little twist and turn to the typical color / photo inspiration as you know I sometimes like to do.  I hear you moaning and groaning, because you have to step outside of the box a little, but it ends up tons of fun in the end.  Don't you think? 

Here's your color / photo inspiration
and your twist

That's it!  Make your project monochromatic.  Not overly stressful, I hope.

The Dudettes have once again appeased my fetish for stepping up to the plate and created some amazing projects to get your mojo moving.

And away...we...go...

Ruth used polka dots & circles and brought the monochromatic theme into her sentiment.
Mo Stooge

Boni's Wanderer looks awesome in it's simplicity! 
Cactus Kirk

Anne's take on the challenge uses rich textures and reminds us that the best things in life are free!!
Lord Money Man

We get lots and lots of polka dots on Cleota's project. 
Gladys Salt

Ginny used two awesome Bonibleaux images to create her great project.
Downtown Delmar Disco & Stylin Stew
White ink on black cardstock creates an amazing backdrop for Tammy's red hatted Grease Monkey Mike!

Great checker board background and stitching went into Lynn's creation to make it pop. 
Chef Burly Becky
Our Guest Designer, Janet, brings us great background papers to go with an oldie, but a goodie from Bonibleaux! 
Mr. Bones Jangle

Now it's your turn.  

THE RULES
1. Use the photo / color inspiration and Dudette creations above to get your mojo moving.
2. You are not required to use BDD images although it would make us really really happy and giggle a lot if you did!
3. MUST be a masculine themed card, you can use humor, innuendo, be a little naughty, sarcastic, but it has got to be for a DUDE!
4. Be sure to use the InLinkz below to submit your creation.

Link up your creation by next Tuesday evening, June 21st.  Or better yet, there is still time to submit your application to be a full fledged Dudette.  The deadline is tonight!  See details on the DT Open Call tab above.

Today also starts Dude Time Doodles sponsorship of Cooking It Up With Katie.  Be sure to visit them and see their design team use Bonibleaux images in their recipe challenges!!

Thank you!
