Play Hard or Go Home

It's Tuesday!  Which means it is time for another challenge on the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog.  This week, the challenge is "Outdoor Fun and Games".  Just take a look of all of the images available in Sassy Cheryl's store and you will see this is an easy challenge to complete with all of the fun images available.

As an obsessed Buckeye fan, I have a pretty low tolerance for "That Team Up North" and with the Sassy Cheryl's image of "Play Hard or Go Home - Sally & Noah" I couldn't help making the card about the rivalry between Ohio State and Michigan (as it does go on and intensify with every passing day...not just once a year). 

I printed the image onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored the image with Copic markers...Sally as the Buckeye, Noah as the Wolverine.  Unfortunately I had to deface Noah a bit by borrowing Charles M. Schulz's technique for Pig-Pen, as a Wolverine on my card is not going to look as clean and nice as a Buckeye.  I sponged Distress-It Tumbled Glass ink for the clouds.  I framed the image with black cardstock. 

On a piece of red cardstock cut with MFT die-namics, I repeatedly stamped a text stamp from a jillian vance design (Ohio Game Day Stamp Set) with Versafine Onyx Black.  A small red button and Buckeye Blend Twine from a jillian vance design were added to the card.

The sentiment "Oh, It's SO On!!!" is from Sassy Cheryl's and is included in "Play Hard or Go Home - Sally & Noah".  It was printed on white cardstock.  I framed the white panel with black and gray cardstock.

I sure hope you'll play along in Sassy Cheryl's challenge.  Free digis are up for grabs, so get crafting!

Thanks for visiting my blog.  And, Go Buckeyes!!!!

Kecia, love your card, wonderfully done!! I had to enlarge the card so I could read the Ohio on the red dp, love it!!! I am not an Ohio fan but sounds like something I would do for Nebraska FB :) Always enjoy seeing your creations.
