A Giddy Golfer


The new challenge at CCC Digi Creations starts today with the theme Anything Goes,
 and Bugaboo Stamps as our wonderful sponsor.

I was given the image Guy Golfing , and must admit he looks a bit giddy at the thought of actually hitting the ball.  I think I would be giddy if I ever got onto a golf course again - with fear that is - I have tried playing once, and that was more than enough!!

I coloured him using my Prismacolor pencils - apart from the jacket, as my orange prismacolour pencil has gone walk-abouts :-(.  After colouring him, I cut the image to size and distressed and sponged the edges

I stamped and embossed the sentiment in deep green, and also distressed the edges of that panel.  I mounted the panel over ribbon, and added some white brads (aka [smooth] mini golf balls)

To add a wee bit more interest I cut three small pieces of ribbon into 'pennants' and added them under the image panel as I mounted it onto an Argyle embossed kraft layer.

I really enjoyed working with this image - Bugaboo are wonderful sponsors and have a wide range of wonderful images.

I am linking this to:
People, Metal, Blue and Brown
Golfer, grass, golf clubs(faux) golf balls.

Thank you for visiting my blog - may your day be blessed
Any comments you may leave are deeply appreciated.

The argyle embossing was genius Maxine and your golfer image is very focused. I like the little details like flags and golf balls. Thank you so much for taking time to post your very creative art with us this week at Word Art Wednesday in our 200th Celebration Week’ challenge!
Blessings and Hugs, Carole
