Yep, I squeaked it in... while everyone else is fast asleep right now I managed to get this LO done. Gotta roll with what ya get, right? This was a weekly sketch challenge on Creative Scrappers. This first picture is the sketch we had to follow/draw inspiration from...
And here is my interpretation of the sketch. The letters I cut out myself. I used left over cereal boxes to make them. Then I rubbed my olive green stampede ink pad and brown ink pad over my craft mat. I spritzed the ink with water and mixed it a little with a paint brush. Then I just dabbed the letters in the puddles here in there to try to make it look like mud splashing up. I followed it up with wiping the edges of the letters with my black ink pad. I also used the same technique for the cardstock strip behind the picture as well as the journaling circle.
Journaling reads " ~ Travel Soccer Team Fall 08~ Coach Hassan is always telling you to "win the ball". Well, in this picture you can see the determination to win it. You can also tell that your opponent took the brunt of your winning.
I think I should probably go to bed now-- the morning is already here and in a few hours the kids will be waking me up!! Hopefully they sleep in a little bit for me!
