Over at Operation Write Home, Sandy's started the Card Bowl 2014 which runs 3 challenges through the weekend. Todays' challenge is to create a masculine card that somehow relates to the team that you're cheering for in the Super Bowl. I'm a college football girl...I root for the SEC and I bleed Red and Black! I'm not a huge NFL fan except for the occasional cheer for the Falcons. I honestly could give two flips about either of the teams in this years Bowl. I have decided that I'd choose the Broncos over the Seahawks only because Knowshon Moreno and Champ Bailey are on the team. And for those still not making a connection....those would be 2 incredible players from the University of (GO DAWGS) Georgia. Granted there is a UGA player on the Seahawks team, but their terrible colors dissuaded me.
My first instinct was to do a beer mug, but since this card is for OWH, that wouldn't be allowed. I figured Red and Black (in support of Moreno and Bailey) would be too much of a stretch. So flipping through my stamps, I came across a Flopsey Fishing set that I won from Sandy. I figured I could incorporate the Broncos team colors on Flopsey's hat. As I was coloring, I realized these colors are just to close to those of several UGA rival teams. I tried to diminish the full effects of the offensive blue/orange combo by dulling it down a bit. I guess its less offensive.
Still continuing to finish up My Minds Eye Darling Dear paper and Adirondack Mushroom ink for distressing. I used a distressing tool to to rough up the edges of all the papers. I also got the idea of cutting Flopsey from Googling images and found Nancy Thomas.
Thanks for stopping by!
