A Golfy Card

So, it's one of my boss's birthday today, and he is an avid golfer. I usually make him a card that uses a picture of a golfer, or a golf bag, or a golf ball. This year I went a bit subtler.

I hate that the background came out so blurry in the scan. I guess that's the price one pays for using the big pop dots. The other thing you can't really see is that the brad has a "K" on it for his last name.

The tree image is a new stamp by Magenta, and is actually just a portion of the image. You can see the whole stamp by clicking here. It's embossed with brown embossing powder and then color was sponged on.

I could explain the background in detail, but Gina K explains it much better than I could in this tutorial. Basically, it's just your reinkers-on-a-moist-towelette technique that some of you may already be proficient in. It's nice because it allowed me to perfectly match the background to the foreground.

Are you planning to address the elephant in the room?

What elephant, Shelby?

The fact that you haven't posted anything since March 20! I'm sure all your blog fans were suffering from withdrawal.

Sorry about that. Life gets in the way, and I forget to blog.

Plus she's been working on her drumming.

That's true! I've been playing with Corky and Shelby in their jazz combo, "Shadows." It's really been a lot of fun, and I'm getting really good.

Don't quit your day job.

At least I have a day job. Somebody's got to support your lifestyle.

Cyndi and Shelby
