Hanging Sports Block

Our Big BBQ yesterday was completely washed out! It rained non-stop ALL DAY! We have a nice large yard with lots of outdoor seating, a perfect party yard (even though we rarely HAVE parties), but the house is not large at all. Fortunately knocking out the wall between our living and dining rooms made it much easier for 16 people to move around and if you sit in the living room you no longer feel cut off from those in the dining room. Money well spent!


Little Andrew got his turtle card and this Hanging Sports Block went to Jake. I colored the image with copics on bellah's bestest paper, shaded with pencils and sponged wheat ink on the edges with a dauber. Sorry for the dark picture!

copics used (get out those E's!):
E11, 13, 15, 30, 31, 37, 95, 97, 99, 40, 42, 43, 44
W3, 5, C3, 5, 6, 8

Tomorrow is back to work for me so I think I'll spend the rest of the day doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Well, maybe I'll throw in a bit of pouting just for good measure!

Sorry you had bad weather!! It's been gorgeous here in SA! Love the card, it is very masculine. I don't think I have made one male card. Terrible I know!

What a great card! Perfect for that sports enthusiast (which I am not). Great coloring as always!

Oh, and I love the throwing in some pouting just for good measure remark. It made me laugh out loud. I may have to borrow that line from you sometime. :)

This is fabulous, sistah! I'm trying to spend the day doing nothing, but hubby keeps reminding me how neglected the house is...doesn't he know that I have neglected STAMPS TOO??? HMPH

Love the card - as usual. Just one question, you quite often say you shade with pencils. What pencils are you using...watercolour? Regular pencil crayons??? or what??

Thanks

You have a way to make the 'difficult' images look so stunning and easy to use! Look forward to seeing little Bessie and the gang all coloured up.

Beautiful card Linda! The sport items look so real. The shading is awesome and also the sponging around the image. Thanks for sharing!
