Fitztown - Anything Goes
Here is my card for the challenge over at Fitztown Challenge Blog - Anything Goes is the theme so I'm sure you'll come over there to join us.
I chose the image Sports 8 and it's available here or if you want to look at all the images then visit the Fitztown Store and have a ball!
This image reminds me of when Tim was young and he loved all things American - baseball being one of them. Friends were going to the USA for a holiday one year and we asked them to bring him a baseball glove back and they did, they also brought him a ball and he was thrilled to bits.
My card blank is by Joanna Sheen. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and fussy cut it out. I used a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder on white paper before matting it on to pale blue card and then I matted that on to dark blue card. The blue card was from Papermill. I copied an image of a baseball bat from the internet and fussy cut that too before adding to the embossed sheet. I put foam pads on the back of the hat and set it over the bat and I think it looks quite effective. The embroidered cap in the bottom left is from a box of embroidery shapes which we bought in USA quite a few years ago. They are for adding to T shirts and the like but when I saw them I thought immediately of embellishments for my cards! lol It can be removed and ironed on to a T shirt. I bought two boxes of them and have only one box left - I've used flowers, palm trees and various other shapes. Well worth the money. I then generated the sentiment on the computer and cut it with one of my new Nellie Snellen dies in a diamond shape. Job done and I like! (That doesn't always happen.)
