Gabriel Loves Soccer

Hello High Hopes Fans

I am excited to share another one of my cards, using one of the stamps and sentiment from the new release--All About Boys!
This is Gabriel Loves Soccer (S525), and sentiment from Sentiment Set #3 (U506).  This stamp is sooo adorable !!! 

I coloured Gabriel with Tombow Markers and water. The background was created using an embossing folder from Darice called Honeycomb.  After I dry embossed the white cardstock, I then flipped it over and coloured the debossed side with a black sharpie marker.  I found it easier to colour the debossed side, as it helped to keep the marker colour inside the lines.  The coloured image was die cut from a hexagon set in my stash.  I punched some grass from a Martha Stewart edger punch a couple of times, then trimmed it to fit inside the hexagon shape.  The sentiment was embossed with black embossing powder, and punched out with an oval punch. Yellow Stickles were added on the stars and a fine black sharpie marker was used for the dots on the scalloped oval punched shape. The sentiment was placed on the card with foam tape.  To complete this design, a few YNS Gumdrops were added to the sides of the coloured hexagon image.
