Basketball Duncan


For some strange reason I've several male images coloured especially has we all know how difficult they are to turn into mens cards.
I do love this fun chap from Dr Digis called Slam Dunk Duncan and I decided I couldn't get keep passing by him by and use him with the Sweet Sketch Wednesday for this week.
I have two problems making this card one not being able to add loads of flowers and that on the sketch there are only two places for embellishments, not keen on even numbers. But I think the two scallop circles work in the end although I would like to add a third.
I think the papers are My Minds Eye but please don't hold me to that and the scallop circles are various punches, the sentiment is Stamping up and the fish tail banner was made by using a square punch and the no  1 was cut using the Cricut.
I finally got down and made a few pages of my Christmas Journal although really I need to change the title and just call it My Christmas Album. It suits me to just make layouts although I am using the class to give my album a sense of order I'm not following it to the letter and I'm please so far.
Today I think its back to the secret project its now 12 weeks and 7 squares to go and panic is now setting in.
The cold snap continues and it looks like I shall be out of my craftroom for another week as we wait for more snow.

  8. I think it's a great card and even numbers doesn't seem to be a problem here. Two circles and the plaque for the image = 3, if you ad in the two mats behind = 5.

  11. Hi Debby

    You have made this tricky layout work quite well. I think the corner bracket helps to offset the two circles (I know what you mean about struggling with even numbers).

    This is such a fun image and your colouring is great!

    Michelle :o)
