Stampin' Sisterhood, Gutter Ball
It's Sunday! Time for another Rubbernecker Stampin' Sisterhood Challenge! Remember, if you play along with us this week, you will have chance to win a FREE STAMP from Rubbernecker and be queened Sunday Sister. And, at the end of each month, all the month's Sunday Sisters will be put in a random drawing to win a STAMP SET from Rubbernecker Stamps! Head on over the the Stampin' Sisterhood's blog for all of the details.
This week's challenge is a the following sketch:
I love making circle cards and shape cards! I was very liberal with the sketch, so I hope the Sisterhood will forgive me, LOL!
For my card I used the hilarious Rubbernecker image "Edna Bowling" (SKU:562-08). I stamped the image with Marvy black dye ink onto X-Press It cardstock. I colored the image with Copic markers and cut around the image using my Cutterbee scissors. For the time being, I set Edna aside.
I made the bowling ball using a Nestabilities circle die, cutting glossy black Cast-Kote cardstock. I then cut the smaller circles on the glossy black cardstock using the smallest Nestabilities circle die. I then mounted this with pop-dots onto a regular piece of black (non-glossy) cardstock, so that the ball appears to have finger holes.
I then conducted a Google image search for a line drawing of a bowling pin, manipulated the size in Microsoft Word, and colored the red lines with Copic markers and a Memento Tuxedo black marker.
Then, I began putting the card together adhering the pin and the ball to a circle card cut from a Nestabilities circle die. I then placed Edna onto the card along with the sentiment.
The sentiment is also from Rubbernecker. It is called "Bowling Ball" (SKU: 563-14) and is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black onto a panel cut with a Nestabilities die.
My guess is that Edna throws a gutter ball, don't you think? Gotta love all of the "Old Characters" images from Rubbernecker!
