Distressed golfer!



I had a request for a card for a girl's Dad's 50th birthday. He is a very keen golfer so knew this fun image from Karen's Doodles would suit perfectly. I won the challenge over there last week so was well chuffed with my 3 new images:) Thanks girls. I went for a distressed look, ripping and tearing the papers and inking up with distress inks.

Image - Karen's Doodles
Papers - Making Memories
Embellishments - distress inks, chalks, peel off embellishments, fancy cut scissors
Medium - coloured with promarkers and highlights with pencil

I would like to enter this into
Karen's Doodles - distressing
Cards for Men - funny
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - distressing
The crafty Pad - vintage look
Stamptacular - so distressing
