Passion for Promarkers - Make it Digital

Good morning, my lovelies and a Happy Tuesday to you all!  Today sees the start of another fab challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and this week it's the lovely Marie in the chair and she would like us to 'Make it Digital' - so use a Digital image and/or papers.  This week we are sponsored by the talented Nikky from Polkadoodles and she is offering 5 lucky people the chance to win her Dollie Daydreams 'Glitz' digistamp.

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 inked all the paper edges with Walnut Stain DI and just matted the image to give it more of a focal point (well that was the intention anyway!?!)...

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!
Big crafty hugs,
