And Many Mower - TSSChallenge #72

Happy Monday to you! It's the day for Technostamper's Monday Sketch Challenge! On the right is our sketch for today which I like very much. Even so, I had to rotate it to accommodate the idea I had for using it. I'm sure I'll be using this sketch again!

Father's Day is coming up on June 21st! My son-in-law plays golf as does my brother so I have good use for this set. Not to mention the images of the set that I didn't use are a lawn mower and some others that can be used for birthdays or even retirement! It's a fun and versatile set and a good investment for cards for guys!

I rotated the sketch because the placement of the sentiment didn't work with this image and had to be moved. I began with a base card of Pacific Point cardstock then layered 1 1/2" wide strip of Muirfield Designer Paper. Even though this DSP was retired from last fall's catalog, I just couldn't resist using the plaid with the golfer. Then I added a 2 1/2" strip of Kiwi Kiss cardstock. The golfer was stamped in Staz-On (so the lines won't blur with the Blender Pen) onto Very Vanilla cardstock (there is Vanilla in the plaid). I colored him in with the Blender Pen and ink from the lids of my ink pads. There is a soft Going Gray shading around the image to ground it. This was layered on Pacific Point cs.

The sentiment was stamped and punched out with the Large Oval Punch then sponged with Kiwi Kiss and layered on a Key Tag Punch out of Pacific Point. This was adhered over the Pacific Point Striped Grosgrain Ribbon that covers the seam of the two papers.

The "golf balls" were made by running a scrap of Whisper White cardstock through the Big Shot with the Small Dots Texturz Plates then punching out three 1/2" circles. These were mounted with "wrong side out", with the dimples going in, for the golf balls, and then on additional circles of Pacific Point.

This was a fun and easy card to make and I enjoyed the sketch! And Many Mower is found in the current Occasions Mini Catalog which ends on June 30! You may see Technostamper's card here and also links to others who've posted their cards done with this sketch.
