Shadow Effects at Graph'It Colouring Challenge

Good morning, we've got a fun challenge starting at Colouring Crazy with Graph'It this morning, we're playing around with shadow effects and I had so much fun making this card! My teamies have some fab projects to share so pop over and have a peep, while you're there check out the fab prize for our lucky winner!

I've used an image from the Polkadoodles CD 'Pretty Tuff', masked him to create the wall effect with a mask from Dutch Doobadoo and a little distress ink. I used my Graph'Its to add colour the bricks as well as colouring the focal image. My shadow effect was created using the tube from an old biro to blow at the brush end of my Graph'Its, it creates a really fun effect

The paper and sentiment are also from the same CD and I've added lots of Dutch Doobadoo embellies including the fabby kraft arrows and the tiny buttons. I've added a ribbon from my stash to finish off.

I'm entering this one in the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks: colour an image
Flat Friends: use a sentiment
The Crafting Cafe: one for the boys
Little red wagon: masculine
Thanks for calling by today
