Friday means a new anything goes challenge at the Sister Act Blog. Whoopsi Daisy is sponsoring this week. You'll have to stop by the blog to see the other DT creations and read about the fun prize in store for the challenge winner.
This card isn't one of my usual cards. You'll notice not one Copic was used - not even for shading! I was inspired by a card in Stamptek's Splitcoast Gallery. Heidi was the Featured Stamper at the end of July and when I saw her Baseball Birthday card, I knew I had to CASE it for my grandson. He'll be 14 this year and is crazy about baseball. I thought this card was so unique and graphic. Perfect for the occasion and the boy!
Heidi's blog post gave enough of an explanation about how she made the baseball to get me started. I Googled a baseball image, printed it in a couple of sizes and then used it as a template to guide the stitching and seam on my die cut circle. A little distress ink gave the ball some scruff and dimension. The letters are an alphabet from PTI and the stars come from a Verve die called Starry. (It was a great purchase because it gives a variety of sizes and I use it often!)
