Dude Time Doodles Jug Band Serenade

Happy February! Bonibleaux Designs/Dude Time Doodles is celebrating Valentine's Day this month, so I brought out Cletus, Jethro Jug & Skeeter for little romantic serenade:

This week at Dude Time Doodles we want to see "a touch of RED." You can view that as a color challenge, or be inspired by the photo on the right.

To spread the love, I'm also entering this in the following awesome challenges:
Party Time Tuesdays #53: Anything Goes
Shopping Our Stash Challenge 37: People Who Need People (I've been hoarding this music-patterned paper forever!)
Quirky Crafts Challenge #3: Make a Scene
Here's a close-up of the band:

These images were so fun to color, and work so well with my current favorite embellishment: Sparkly Fluff. I also used black Sparkly Fluff for the banjoman's beard. For the hats, I used FlowerSoft. The "CoonSkin" Hat is made with a mix of yellow flocking and light brown & "Heather" FlowerSoft.

I made the banners from a brown paper bag! I stamped the flattened bag with one of the Pretty Pendants from the set by SP & Company, heat-embossed it in red, squished up the bag, then cut out the pendants. They are glued/strung onto a red-and-white bakers twine. This is literally Baker's twine, in that it came with the sweet bread we bought for Christmas morning at a local bakery!

Can't wait to see what you come up with the Dude Time Doodles Touch of Red Challenge!
