It's an anything goes

Morning and hello!
It's me again, tired but happy. Got home from Malmö late last night after having watched my favourite team in the world play, the National team of Sweden and the sport is handball! Since 1988 I have been dreaming of watching them live and finally I got the chance to do that. Sneak that I am, I gave the tickets to my boys as a Christmas gift and off we went. We lost by one goal but I have seen them play and it was such fun. It couldn't get better as the team we played against was Denmark, another one of favourite teams. They have amazing players too. Real fun and now I hope to see yet another game in April when they come to Växjö which is only about 100 km drive instead of 300.


But you are not here to listen to me talking about my sports again are you? I have a little announcement to make. Before Christmas I saw a little ad about a dt-call. It was Party Time Tuesday which was looking for new designers. Now we are so many and the challenges are always "Anything goes" so a nice and easy task for everyone. So I hope that you from time to time come and play with us. The challenge is monthly at this time.

This time I have yet another card for a boy and I have made something simular before but this is a new one, well actually I made two of them for my boys' friends. I have used and image from Crafters Companion called "Lets play football" and coloured it with my Letraset markers. I have also used a whole bunch of die cuts as I love the back drop in the shape of a soccer ball or football if your over in Europe as I am. :) The colour scheme use is the colours of my boys' team Lindsdal. And as the boys' has birthdays and parties to go to... well, I better be prepared.



To make the foot ball I have used Joanna Sheen's die for patch work the middle size I think it is, wish I had the bigger one. And then I spend quite some time die cutting left over / scrapps of black and white card stock. After that it's time to start to glue all the pieces together. This also take some time as it's no fun when the glue shows up in the edges of each piece. But it's so worth it all when it's done. Once it's all dry I use yet another die cut in a circlar shape to cut the ball out. Taadaa! A classic black and white soccer ball is born!


We have a sponsor for this challenge and that is Spectrum Noir and here is a little info about them.

There are 120 wax-based blendable pencils that are great for using on their own or combined with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. AquaTint inks are intense, concentrated liquid water paints.
And that's all from me for today. I hope to see you around and that you come and play with us over at PTT.

I love your masculine card. Would you let me showcase your card and share a link to your blog post in what I call Manly Monday? It's a post on my blog where I share masculine cards (of all ages) as inspiration for my readers. If you are interested, please email me a direct link to your card so I can find it at grohcm at gmail dot com and I will add you to the lineup for the following Monday. I hope to hear from you.
