Up To Par

  I admit it, I'm not good at golf. I have had a few unsuccessful visits to the driving range but I do okay at mini golf.....that counts right?!? The only golfing I do these days is make cards with a golf theme so when I got a request for a golf themed card I was happy to see what I could come up with.

I went through my stash of stamps and "Golfer Glen" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps was begging to be used.....especially since the recipient has a sense of humour. Finding a sentiment was the next challenge so I masked and stamped three different sentiments to create the one I wanted to use. 


   I started my stamping Glen and colouring him with Copic markers. Next I had hand fussy cut him and decided he needed some paper pieced plaid pants. I stamped his pants on plaid paper, fussy cut them and added them to the stamp. 
I decided Glen needed to find himself in the rough .....I mean that's where my balls went when I tried golfing so why not?! I created my background with some grunge paper, added a few die cut clouds and some grass reeds I had in my stash and added Glen with foam pop dots. 
To create the sentiment, I found three different stamps that were all the same font and masked and stamped the words I wanted from each stamp. This took more than one try to get it right and a whole lotta patience! I cut it with a fish tail banner and added it to the card along with some glitter dots to finish it off.
