Hit for Six

This week’s challenge at Passion for ProMarkers is ‘sporting marvels’ [Week #102]. I couldn’t find an image I liked, and being of a non-sporty inclination I don’t have any stamps either. So I created my own digistamp, tracing a picture out of Saturday’s Times newspaper, scanning it, tidying it up in an image editor and then printing it out onto coated cardstock before colouring in. The figure six and the ball were hand drawn. A couple of bits of ephemera (gleaned from the net, printed in colour and then distress inked), layering with foam pads, and the card is complete.

Incidentally I was one of the winners in their grand second anniversary draw last week šŸ™‚

  1. Hi Neil, what a gorgeous card. I love the image (very clever of you to transfer one from the newspaper) and your colouring is perfect. Thanks for joining in with my challenge over at PFP this week. Hugs, Denise x
