Sport - Craft-Room Challenge DT Card

Hi, at last (after moving house) I'm back with a DT post (thank you Zoe & the team for being so understanding :-)).  I've really missed blogland and my crafting and it's taken me ages to get my little room sorted - I still can't find half my stuff, lol, but it's useable and I'll get there eventually.

Anyway, it's time for a new challenge over at Craft-Room and the very talented Mervi has chosen the theme of:

This theme was very daunting for me, as I have no real sport themed stamps so, after a good rummage, I found this cute little fellow doing a spot of fishing (apparently one of the most participated sports, would you believe!):
The image was stamped in Coffee Archival Ink and coloured with Coloursoft pencils in shades of brown, and blended with Sansador.  Some chalk was added to the top of the image.  The dps are from Making Memories and the card base is Kraft cardstock.  Some twill tape, glossy accents, a few pearls and a TH ticket to finish.

This fortnight's challenge is sponsored by:

who manufacture fabulous red rubber stamps

As usual, there will be a random draw, with a prize from Tanda Stamps, and Mervi will choose her top 3 favourites - the usual rules apply (please see the challenge blog). 

I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs to see your sporty creations. 

Have fun, and enjoy the rest of your week.

Welcome back to Blogland Maria and good luck with The Boxes! I love the understated colours of your lovely piece - and isn't fishing one of the most popular sports because people confuse it with 'sitting by the river for a bit'?!! Vicky x
