Colour Crazy Challenge Guest Designer

Hello There Crafty Friends,
I am so excited and honored to have been asked to be a guest designer for...
The theme is always 'Anything Goes'

The wonderful sponsor is 'Polkadoodles

...I really enjoyed coloring/making a card with this 'Basketball' player...
 All three of my children enjoyed sports and basketball was one they all played.
I even coached little league basketball for three years with my son on the team.
The image reminds me of that and what wonderful memories it brings to mind. :)

...For my card...
I colored the image with colored pencils. Used distress oxide ink on the white card base, around the image, on the sides of the paper and on both sentiments. I also added a basketball and star brad on the card.

Marco Raffine Colored Pencils

  2. Your coloring with pencils is fantastic and love how it gives a lot of shading and dimension...adorable image and fun card. I don't used color pencils very often, but maybe I should pull them out and see what I can do...I'll usually pull out my copics.
