Sunrise Golfer

>> Tuesday, May 31, 2016

Hi Everyone,

The current challenge here on the blog is "Play Ball", so I'm back today with another golf themed card!  I hope you have a chance to "get inky" and join us!

My card started out with me sponging that green and yellow background scene, so that I could add the Silhouette Male Golfer in the foreground.  Unfortunately, after stamping him I swiped an inky finger across the beautiful golden sky and ended up with a big black smudge that couldn't be camouflaged.  So, after shaking my fist in the air and a holding a minor pity party, I fished it out of the trash and decided it was an opportunity for creativity.  I cut him down and matted him in black.  I then stamped the Par-fect Golf  Birthday Greeting, cutting it down and matting it as well.  To match it up with the image, I stamped it with the Splatter Background stamp in yellow and green ink.

I embossed a bright yellow background, but it seemed too plain when I was piecing the card together, so I made a piece of patterned paper using the cut apart Woven Plaid stamp, using the same yellow, green and orange inks. You can check out this great tutorial here, and see how it's done.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you at the challenge!

Karin, I really like your color combo on this awesome masculine card! Great job salvaging the golfer too! I also get so made at myself when I smudge ink on my cards! ☺️

Great card Karin! I'm thinking smudging it was a good thing! Love the "square" look to him and the square of the plaid!

Great save, Karin! Love the colors & the added plaid bg gives so much interest. If had a penny for every time I had to rework a card after an "incident" I'd be living on easy street.
