Football Crazy

This week’s challenge at Digi Doodle Shop’s Best is THESE ARE MY PEEPS.This means you must have a person/people  on your project .Check out the challenge by clicking on the link.The DT have come up with some wonderful creations to inspire you and there is the chance to win a fabulous prize!

For my card I’ve used Boy Soccer Player from Digi Doodle Shop.He’s such a cutie and looks so engrossed in what he’s doing.I love the fact he has movement and the crease lineson his clothing give a good guide where to shade.He also looks a little like my DS1 with his moppy hair.That’s why I made him blonde.This is also going to be a Birthday card for him.It’s not ’til December but I like to try and keep ahead.

Mediums : Promarkers + Blender Pen,Bundled Sage and Faded Jeans Distress Ink,Inkssentials White gel pen on stripes on football boots
