I haven't really been away from The Male Room as I scheduled my posts before I went on holiday - it's a little bit easier as it runs biweekly instead of weekly. I may however not have got around to commenting on all your lovely masculine cards, so apologies for that and I guarantee I will be leaving comments on all the entries for this challenge. As usual we have a theme and today it is SPORTS AND HOBBIES - easy for a man I think.
I tried several different ideas for this one but this one is the best (and the quickest to make - isn't that so often the way!)
My Dad was a golfer in his younger days, I think he had to give up playing when he was about 76! Anyway, he inspired this card. It is a pretty straight forward piece of paper layering. I used a scalloped circle and a stipple brush to make the cloudy sky, ripped the edge of the green card to simulate grass and have used the debossed side of a swiss dots folder to make the ball. The golf balls my Dad had always had writing on them, so I've added the writing from Nature Walk - seemed authentic enough.The dark green mat is also embossed, this time with Mosaic Madness. A cocktail stick and a couple of hand cut triangles to make the flag and the tee, the flag is curled to add some dimension, finish the job. The sentiment is from Happiest Birthday Wishes - such a versatile set.
I'm also going to pop this one into the challenge at The Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge, which I just discovered and where the theme is Sports and into this month's Male themed challenge at The Cupboard Trilogy, in the card challenge.
