Our sponsor this month at the Crafting Circle’s Crafty Awesomeness Challenge is “Digital Stamps 4 Joy.” They were kind enough to provide us with two great stamps to use. Check out their web site here to see what else they have to offer. I also hope you’ll come and join us and maybe you’ll be this month’s winner. So give it a try!
My first card makes a great card for any golfer in your circle of friends or family. You can find the image called “Golf Stuff” here. I colored the image with my Copic Markers and also used a few Prisma Colored Pencils to color the golf ball. When it came to choosing a patterned paper that would fit the idea I had for the card, which was for a male friend, I dug through my 6×6 paper stacks looking for ones that I felt would be appropriate. The paper I chose was by Authentique and is called “Free Bird.” I just love how this paper stack combines these “Male” colors and uses lots of different patterns to keep the dark colors from being boring.
I topped the card off with taking some of my black embroidery thread and winding it around the first layer of the card and tying it into a bow.
