For my card, I decided to use the fabulous Soccer Boy digistamp that I bought from MilknCoffee after discovering their digistore and also the brilliant sketch that is running over at Fussy and Fancy Friday this week...
...I didn't want the card to be specific team colours. but just a little boy playing football, so went with papers from Prima's Bohemian Bamboo paper pad in red, blue, grey and green. The great sketch has lots of layers, but because of the different patterns on my papers, I decided not to mat my layers as I felt it would make the card too busy!...
I coloured Soccer Boy using my Pro/Flexmarkers and here's the colour list I used :
Skin - Blush, Dusky, Sunkissed Pink, Coral (my usual combo)
Hair - Cappuccino, Caramel, Cocoa, Umber
Top - Red, Crimson, Burgundy
Shorts - Cool Grey 1, 3, 4 & 5, Pacific, Cadet Blue
Boots - Cool Greys, Lime Zest, Pear, Moss
Ball - Dolphin Blue, Glacier Blue, Cool Grey 1
Grass - Meadow, Leaf, Bright Green
...I finished my card with a printed insert using the black and white line image and the sentiment ' It's your Birthday!'. I really like the layout of this card and will definitely be using this sketch again! Hope you like my little creation and can join in with Marie's challenge this week! Don't forget to hop on over to the Passion for Promarkers blog to see what my lovely teamies have been up to and I look forward to seeing your creations too!
