Happy Tuesday to all of you. We have a new challenge for you over at the Ladybug Crafts Ink Totally Ladybug Challenge Blog. Our lovely Pinky chose the theme this week and she asked that we make a card for a child.
I used Football Jack for my card today. Yes, for those of us on this side of the big pond, we would call this Soccer Jack. But Ladybug Crafts Ink is in Scotland and so this is Football Jack. Isn't he a cutie? My 5 year old grandson plays soccer so this image reminds me of him. Of course, I use the word "plays" loosely. At 5 years old, I think they are there more to socialize with their friends, get a treat when the game is over, and collect a trophy at the end of the season lol!
Anyway, enough blabbering, I used my copics and colored pencils to color Jack. I used my Basic Grey Max and Whiskers paper for this card ... yes, another pad I've been hoarding ... but I am getting better at using my papers, I promise! Since this card is for a boy, I've kept my embellishments to a minimum. That's so hard for me because I love the glitter, ribbon, flowers and all the glitz! So anyway, just a button with a little twine bow for an embellishment. For my layout, I used a sketch I saw over on the Your Next Stamp Challenge Blog awhile back. I really liked this layout, especially for a male card. I have a hard time with cards for boys and men, so it was nice to have a starting point for this card.
Be sure you stop by the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog to check out the beautiful work by my Ladybug teamies. I hope you find the time to enter our challenge this week.
