This card is Kick'n

Guess what day it is today?
If you guessed Design Team day for Redonkulous designs your right ;)
Today I used this image called "football/soccer girl"
I coloured her up with my copics and a couple of my Stampin' Up markers.
I find the Copics tips are not thin enough to add in some of the detail I want. So I hit up my Stampin Up markers :)

I tried a different skin tone on this girl. I am not sure if I am loving it yet.
But how would I know if I didn't try....right :)
I paper pieced her shirt and drew in the grass.
I just love the action in this image.

As much as I like this image I couldn't think what to use it on. Then I mentioned to my SIL, "What am I going to write....have a kick'n birthday?" then we looked at each other and said "That's pretty good, lol."
I stamped the banners and then coloured them in with my Stampin" Up markers and then hand cut them out. 

 The inside of my card.
You know I use recipe/index cards for the inside message.
I had printed out a couple of soccer balls from the internet and used the biggest one on the inside of the card.

 Here is something a bit different for me, I thought I would share the colours I used on this card.
When I showed hubby all the colours I had used, he was a bit shocked.
See I really do need all these markers, teehee.

As much as I really like my card, this cutie was fighting me every step of the way.
After I had coloured her up...which went smoothly. I backed the image on some paper and realized my regular 5.5 x 5.5 inch card base was too small.
So I went for a 6x6 card base. Took me forever to figure out which sized soccer ball I wanted on the front.
Then when everything was said and done, I went to open the card and found out I put everything on wrong as the card would have had to open backwards. Kristy had a bit of a chuckle out of that one.
So I just cut the front of the card off and adhered it to another card base.
That is what I get for leaving it until the last minute.

Here are the other DT projects
And of course Kim who has a project up every week.

Onto My Day:
As you know every second Wednesday is my Redonkulous DT projects and the post goes up while I am still snug in my bed. So not sure what my day will bring.
But I am hoping to finish my mini album and get it into the mail :)

Hope you all had a creative Wednesday :)

  8. Oh my...i've done the very same thing in the past...and i fixed it in the very same way...i've printed out as many as 5 or 6 different sheets to get it the way i want...but your efforts payed off. I love the paper piecing i didnt' even realize you did that...and the inside of the card is perfect...well done..tfs

  9. You cracked me up! I have had the same thing happen with a card and I did the same thing you did. Just cut it off and put in on a new base. I hate having a fight with a card but I guess I win most of the time so it is OK. LOL Love the card and you coloring is amazing. Yes you need all those colors and more. I have a list started for some colors I would like. I really love the way you colored the eyes. Very pretty!

  10. Amazing coloring. I have problem coloring skin and hair a lot of times. I still have a long way to go until I can color like you hehe...

  11. Your kickin' card is stinkin' cute! Great job coloring the image and the grass is great. Every time you draw things like that I think it's a stamped image. Yep, you're that good!!!!
    Guess what? Early in the morning we are going on a road trip to Louisiana, Jer needs to get his physical for his new job. So it's my turn to travel!! Yeah baby. ;)

  12. Oh Tracy! She turned out awesome even though you had to fight her! Hehe! I just LOVE the big soccer ball-such a great idea! The sentiment is absolute genius!!! You get a double high five for that one! =)
