A male card...cricket!

Good morning all!
Well I have made so many cards for the Less Is More challenge this week that I decided it was time to do something a bit different and use up some of the images I already have coloured in! So this is a card made with LOTV Cricket stamp from their new 'The Boys Are Back In Town' Collection, of which Jen and I have most!

I have coloured him in with Promarkers (Peach, light Peach, Oatmeal, Cobalt Blue, Cocoa, Primrose, Vanilla, Cool Grey1, Warm Grey5, Shale), and I used chalks for the grass and the sky. I cut him out with the largest of the Nesties Labels 12, and cut out a picket fence from white card......no template or punch.......just by eye! I pulled it all together with a couple of scrap bits of paper and used the Sketch from this week's Pixie Cottage Challenge. I finished by making a red Card Candi into a cricket ball using my gold Promarker!

I am also entering into the following challenges......
Passion For Promarkers - Theme - Sports
Ladybug Crafts - Make your own embellishments (the cricket ball and fence!)
Cards For Men - No Designer Papers
Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central - Masculine card
Charisma Cardz Challenge - Boy Oh Boy!

Thanks for looking and please leave me a comment as I love reading them! :)
