{TSG195} Slugger

This week, our challenge is to use the sketch provided. It was inspired by a card from our fabulous Trendsetter, Tobi Crawford!!

For my card tonight, I used my yet-to-be-inked Swing Big stamp set to make a boy's birthday card for my stash.  I stamped him onto X-press It blending CS with memento tuxedo black and coloured with Copics, adding some brown and black pastels for deep shading. I inked the edged with Tea Dye distress ink and used my sewing machine to add black stitching. The circle panels were cut with MFT's Circle STAX dies and the sentiment banner was created with MFT's Fishtail Flags STAX. I added some black brads to the bottom, as it looked a little bare. The sentiment was stamped with MFT's Black Licorice ink.

To be eligible for the giveaway, create a card or project using the provided sketch, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (February 25th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!
