Ok, here is my double challenge card. It is for the WT448 challenge to make a card with a theme that starts with the same letter as username. My user name is just that my name, and I decided to go with "MASCULINE" as my theme. I decided to make a baseball card for my son in law who love the St Louis Cardinals. It is also for the mixed media challenge mix37. I was drawn to this dp because I thought it would be easy to get the challenge done because the little banners already had plaid on it. It had little white polka dots. I thought it would be fun to make them into baseballs. I took my black ink pen and drew half circles on them for the stitching. I alternated the directions of the half circles to add interest. I stamped two little cardinals using Mark's Finest Papers set called CHRISTMAS SELECTIONS. I watercolored them and cut them out. I stamped the baseball and banner using Mark's Finest Papers set called TAILGATE PARTY. I used an old alphabet set to stamp CARDS on the banner. I decided to shorten it #1 because I ran out of room and # 2 because I liked the irony of it spelling out what I like the most... making cards. LOL. I was trying to use hot glue to attach the banner panels to a piece of black twine. I got a little sloppy and there was a little spill over, so this is where I got creative. I purposely went over the little spillover and made round hot glue dots in between the panels. I then took cream acrylic paint and painted them. I added the half circles to them just like I did to the dots on the paper.
