#106 Games Over - sketch
Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - use the sketch
Sponsor & prize this week - Digi Doodle Shop ($10 gift voucher)
For my take on the sketch that Karen has devised for us this week, I have used an image from our sponsor, Digi Doodle called, 'Games Over', of this poor, dejected lad whose side would have appeared to have lost given the sad look on his face. Now, you could write on a postage stamp what I know about baseball, but the outfit I have given him looks good enough to me. LOL - and by the way, that is indeed a red shirt & hat I gave him, but try as I might it kept coming out in the photos a little pinkish rather than a colour very similar to the circles around him that it actually is. Grrr. In fact, all the colours on the image look washed out compared to the original today. No idea why.
Still, whatever team this might or might not be, it was coloured using Promarkers and I continued the ball kind of theme with the border around him, using red as well as white, as I believe they 'sew' the baseball with red stitches. I then set the bordered image so it was slightly above the card base using foam pads.
The layers of card are all Papermania textured cardstock and for the detailing on the sketch I cut out two circles at the top & bottom of the card so that the white below (yes, you guessed it - more balls, LOL) would peep through. Nothing like running with a theme is there! LOL.
Challenges I would like to enter this card for are:
Crafty Catz - 'b' is for baseball
Hotshot - one for the boys
Wags 'n' Whiskers - masculine birthday
Sweet Stampin' - it's a man thing
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - manly or for a boy
Cupcake Craft - boys and their toys
Sisterhood of Crafters - use a digi
