Happy In A Sandtrap?!

It's Thursday and my turn to post some inspiration for you on the High Hopes blog. 

Bob loves golf and I think he is the only one who would look this happy in a sand trap! 

I don't golf but for many who do, finding themselves in a sand trap once and awhile is a reality - or so I'm told <wink>

My card features Bob Loves Golf (T517) and a sentiment from Sentiment Set #4 (U507).


A close up of the sand

The first time I tried adding sand to my card, I did it on the white background and I didn't like the look. I was up to my eyeballs in white glue and sand - although I did feel like I was at the beach for awhile! 
So, I coloured the area with an alcohol marker that matched the sand and then applied my glue and sand - I am much happier with this!
 I used the negative space of a chunky grass die to create my grass edge and outlined with a .01 Zig millenium marker. 
I added some Wink of Stella to his glasses although it is hard to see. 
I coloured Bob with alcohol markers (list below) and paper pieced his pants and hat. The sky is coloured with a light blue chalk pencil and I added cotton balls for some whispy clouds. I finished the card off with some eyelets from my stash and some hemp cord and popped the "scene" up with pop dots.
