Playing A-round

The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is For a Man.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

After toying with a few football and circular themed ideas the decision was made to go with a round easel card plus a paper pieced football.Perfect for this great little guy – Let’s Play Ball by Crafty Sentiments Designs.He’s been coloured up with Copic Ciao Markers.As this is for my DH (it’s OK he won’t see it – he doesn’t show any interest in my blog :P) and being he’s an avid Man Utd fan I tried to colour this as closely as I could to their home kit.The trophy is a bought die cut piece I’ve had an my stash for many years,dragged out especially for this occasion 😉 The ‘1’ is removable so it got a coating of black Copic ink before being put back into place.A stamped tag has been tied to the handle with some cord from a clothing price tag.I found the chipboard button from the same collection as the paper and threaded some more cord through that.Spot and stripes make a good combination for manly cards,don’t you think?A computer generated greeting added as a banner shaped stopper completes the card .
