Lookin’ GoodPosted: May 20, 2014
To colour this little golfer I stamped first in Memento Desert Sand ink to give myself a pale outline I could easily paint over. I then picked up colour from my watercolour pencils with a waterbrush and painted the golfer, the greens and the sky. I added a few little details with a 0.05mm fine line marker before I matted the panel in green and added a sentiment.
There will be inspiration for masculine cards all week on the Penny Black blog. (Make sure you check yesterday’s post; Cathy’s Potting Shed card is superb) If you are like me you probably don’t make enough masculine cards; I really need to build up my supply. This one won’t work for me as my Dad does not play golf; my husband doesn’t either so my children won’t be needing to grab it. They can get creative themselves for Father’s Day in Canada; I have until September to create something for Father’s Day in Australia.
