InStyle Stamps: Soccer Man

Hi All,

I decided to make a CAS (Clean & Simple) card using Nathan from InStyle Stamps.  This is the perfect image for any guy card, and especially the soccer fanatics! Ahem, World Cup.

I only used a Whisper White card base with no other layers.  Now THAT is simple!  I took the base, as well as one of the Label 3 Nesties, and used that to emboss a frame, without cutting the paper.  With the Nesty still on the paper, I used that as a stencil to sponge some blue and green inks inside the frame, and I also stamped a misc grass stamp in Always Artichoke ink at the bottom.  I stamped the sentiment (from SU's Well Scripted) in Basic Black ink underneath the frame, and I also scored a vertical line on each side of the frame using my Scor-Pal.  I used my Mat Pack and paper piercer to place some blue brads along the left side next to the sentiment.

I printed Nathan onto PTI White CS, coloured him with Copics, cut him out, and mounted him on with Dimensionals. 

Now, don't forget, there are always sketch, colour, and hump day challenges running at the InStyle Stamps blog.  Remember to head on over to participate, and have a chance to win some great prizes (and I mean GREAT)!
AND, they are still having their DT call until July 16.  Click HERE to take a look.

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
