What A Swing

Hi everyone,


Well, what wonderful weather we have been having here in Warwickshire ~ I have finally managed to get some serious gardening done ~ instead of pottering around in the greenhouse.


Today I would like to share a card I made for my Step Brother who lives in Southern Ireland and enjoys the odd round of golf.




I have printed out the image which is a digi image from Karen's Doodles called 'What A Swing' and coloured it in with my copics, I then ran it through my die cutting machine with a Nestabillities oval die (I don't know why, but every time I use this image it always ends up in a oval shape ~ it just seems to suit it somehow),  I have then mounted the image onto a piece of Bazzil Basics lime green card also cut with a slightly larger oval die.  For the base card I have used one of my cut down hammered white card blanks and layered with the same lime green card stock and some purple Bazzil Basics card stock, I then used two pieces of patterned paper from the Kaisercraft 'Lilac Avenue' Collection and hid the join with a piece of purple self adhesive ric rac, which I thought was more manly than ribbon!  I added a sentiment from Craftwork Cards 'Messages' pack which was coloured with a copic marker and to finish added three Craftwork Cards 'Candi' dots.   When it was all assembled I thought the image was a little too white, so I distressed the edges with a Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad in 'Old Paper' to tone it down.


I hope you all like it and thank you so much for visiting me today.
