For some reason baseball came into my mind when I set out to make something for the blog. We're big Twins fans!
The stamps are from Cracker Jack except for the film strip which is from Happiness. I stamped the film strip 4 times, then cut an Eclipse tape mask so I could stamp the images into it. All coloring was done with watercolors......my favorite medium right now.
I repeatedly stamped the baseballs to make the backround paper. Again, I used watercolors for shading and color between the balls.
Once I got all done with this card, I had a few scraps leftover......some things that hadn't worked and some left from what I used.
So I quickly put together a second card.......
You'll recognize the strip of baseball paper as the same as my first card. The ballpark names was a piece that didn't work for the first card. I stamped the tan card front with versamark using a mask over the baseball player. A few mats and the verse completed the card. When I was done, I liked this card best!
Sometimes my favorite pieces are the ones I do quickly......no time to think too much!
Have a great weekend!
