Slam Dunk...

Good Evening Bloggers...

I know I've been a very bad blogger recently, but there just seems to be so much going on that crafting and blogging are having to take a back seat.

I have a card to share with you today that's for my son's birthday next week. I don't think he'll look at my blog - facebook and twitter are far more exciting than my little old blog.

It's a great image for a teenage boy and suits him just perfectly. If he's not swimming (which is most days) then he's playing basketball at school in lunch break.

Here is my card using Mo Manning's 'Slam Dunk' and a great sketch from CLP Challenge.

I've coloured the image with copics and distressed the edges of my papers using vintage photo.
The papers are Raspberry Road - Cowboy Cool.

Here's a close up of the image.

I used Doo Hickey flags and Tim Holtz Typeset dies to create the name banner at the top. The stars were made using Die-namics stacking stars dies. 

Here's a last look to show the 3d effect .
