"A Safe Pair of Hands"

This is the first of three cards I need to make for my eldests 21st which is in two weeks time.

 The image is from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop and is from a set called "A Safe Pair of Hands" - it's comes as an outline and a pre-coloured sheet and Ann is donating all her profits (after paypal fees) from the sale of this set to The Great North Air Ambulance - this is a lifeline in the air for many a casualty in the North of England.

This is what you get for £1.50 - yes all four sheets so pop over to Ann's now and get yours.

This is what I did with one of the outline stamps:

I put the layout together in Publisher. Background is a photo of Anfield which I've changed the colour of and added the grass, a gradient border and some text. The image was then layered over the top along with the scores and badge. After printing the goal posts, goalie, scores and badge were layered up for dimension. The image is coloured with promarkers. I hope he likes it!

Challenges entered:
Kaboodle Doodle - show your colours (red and white for England)
Aud Sentiments - card for a male
Passion for Promarkers - sporting marvels

  1. Carol that is just adorable! Love the layering and your coloring is wonderful. Thanks for joining us in our Show Your Colors challenge at Kaboodle Doodles. ~chris

  2. Such a great card Carol, I'm sure he'll love it. Jo x

  3. This is absolutely fabulous Carol. My nephew (who is the reason for us to be so grateful to the GNAA and also the 'model' for the goalie) is a fervent Liverpool fan too so I'll have to show him this one!
    I've just had a lesson on being careful which bit of my varifocals I look out of too - when I read your post I read that the price was £150 instead of £1.50 - lol! I think I need more sleep!!!
