PanPastels - Sports

A vintage birthday card on the theme of sports today and using the only sports related stamp I have got!!

The textured card was stamped with the image in embossing ink and PanPastels rubbed over the top to give the ghost image in the background. I used several masks and layered embossing inks and PanPastels for the backing panel.

For the focal image I blended blue and green PanPastels on the card and then stamped with archival ink. Using the Sofft blending tools and a rubber I 'painted' the main image. Now I see it photographed, I realise I should have tried some of my team mate Claire's clouds on it. Mmmm must remember that next time.

Some simple embellishments, keeping it quite plain for a masculine card, finished it off.
