One for the Chaps!

Just one chap in particular – my brother-in-law, in this case, who celebrates his birthday next week.  My husband’s first comment on this card is that it’s a load of . . . . . well, I’ll leave you to work that one out for yourself!!

Believe it or not, this card was my inspiration. The golf ball stamp is by Craft UK,and is quite an old one as I’m trying very hard to find new ways to use my old stamps. The greeting stamp is by Clearly Besotted, from their Many Messages set. I first stamped & embossed one golf ball & the greeting in black, then masked off the centre of the card. I used my Woodware stamp positioner to randomly stamp the golf ball in various Hero Arts Shadow Inks in shades of black & grey. I decided the focal golf ball wasn’t quite focal enough, so I used Anita’s Clear Gloss to make it stand out a bit more.

I’m entering this into this week’s challenge at Less is More.

Cardstock: Anna Marie Designs

  2. I can certainly see how Virginia's card inspired you with this one Helen and I think your husband may have been right in a literal sense but definitely not in a descriptive way! I love the pattern you made using the golf balls and the glossy focal one. Vicky x
