Cardz4Guyz Challenge #263- Any Sport

Today’s card for the Cardz4Guyz Challenge #263- Any Sport, deviates from my usual in that I am using a stamp that is not from Stampin’ Up!®. I just love the Peanuts and Snoopy, and Snoopy playing soccer seemed to be the best choice for this challenge.

I did use the new Stampin’ Up!® Blending Brushes to create the background. I first stamped Snoopy on the card front, then used a mask over him while applying the background.

I used Balmy Blue, Granny Apply Green and Mango Melody ink. The Blending Brushes are very easy to use. I will still need a little practice to get the background more uniform. Snoopy’s jersey is colored with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers in Light and Dark Mango Melody.

The soccer balls stamped along the side of the card are from a retired Stampin’ Up!® stamp set called Great Sport. Check out other sports related cards at Cardz4Guyz Challenge #263. Have a great fun-filled day!
