I'm watching World Cup this weekend! Out of the four football matches, two went to penalty kick. I am no soccer guru but really hate this rule of the game because it is no different from a flip of coin. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the games and luckily I still got some time to make a few cards.
This is one of those I made today:
It is based on the sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge:
And boy, it is a tough sketch (for me)! I've tried various things - Christmas, Fall, but none of them seemed to work with the sketch. I finally picked the Blue Skies stamp set from Lawn Fawn and the Hello Sunshine paper for the background.
I did enjoy coloring the balloons a lot! At first I thought I would use distress markers so I used watercolor paper, but I changed m mind, as always, and used my Inktense color pencils. It is just fun to color these outline images.
For the banner, I used the word "HAPPY" from Hello baby stamp set. I carefully masked off the letters every time as I only need to stamp one letter on one pennant.
I have not yet determined how I am going to use this card. It could be a graduation card, a birthday card or all occasion card. Love the versatility!
My card is linking up to the following:
