Wednesday is golf day

Hey there!  Are you excited it's already Wednesday?  I sure am!  We are heading out of town for a short get away to Williamsburg which will be so nice.  I didn't want to go at first but now, I am ready to get there.  I love walking through the cobblestone streets and admiring  all the colonials.  I hope the heat will let up  but what will happen is not in my hands.  :-) What about you?  Any plans for the weekend?

I have a golf birthday card for today. My FIL plays golf every Wednesday.  This card is for his upcoming birthday.  I won't give away the age but I can say it's only a number to him.  Gotta love that!    Our theme at Crafty Creations is male birthday along with this sketch.  Our sponsor is Delicious Doodles. 
I think it's widely know my ability to create masculine cards is not the greatest.  In fact, it's down right pathetic.  I try and stick with muted earth tones, basic embellishments like brads, buttons, twine, and eyelets and little layering.  For this card, I knew I needed to keep it flat for mailing purposes. I added stitching which I think is fine for a masculine card.


I used more scraps :-) and then the golf ball & tee image which I cut out and added to the card.  I wanted to show you what I did to give the golf ball some dimension.


First I added white dots with my white Unibal pen.  Then I applied grey ink with an eyeshadow brush to give slight definition.  The last step was to add glossy accents for the dimples you would see on a golf ball.  I thought this turned out rather well  Better than I projected when I started.   That's a SRM sticker for the sentiment.
