Man of the Match

I'm on a roll tonight and I'm here with my entry into this weeks Cards For Men sketch challenge and CES #27 Cards for Men. This card is for one of the lads at work's birthday tomorrow.  So here is the card.

I've use a Papermania image and coloured in with promarkers ( Cool Grey 3-5, Lipstick red, berry red, Burgundy, almond, dusky pink, buttercup and mustard) and then cut around it leaving a very fine border.  I've used the Promarker card I picked up from Anna Marie designs yesterday and no bleeding (yippee!!!).. Following the sketch I have used Pink Petticoat papers from the Big Fella collection, and on the stripe I imported it into word and layered it with white writing so it would leave a void in the stripes.  I have then gone around the letters with a black fine liner in a dash fashion to make it stand out.  The Footballs are made using a wood ware clear stamp from the sports set that have been stamped using stazon onto white shrink plastic.

Thanks for looking today.  Hope you like it
