Golfer's 50th Birthday

This is another special request card for a golfer with black hair!  I only have the one golfer stamp Retired Raymond from High Hopes, so he's now got a black moustache too LOL ;)

Image coloured with watercolour pencils and popped up on dimensionals; clear gloss added to the golf club (ha, I nearly called it a golf stick there!) and golf ball.  Paper pieced his shirt and flaps (??) on shoes.  Clouds chalked on BG.  I watercoloured my grass after marking it out with a paper smooches die but it looks a bit wishywashy here.

Somehow I managed to stick my red panel down wonky, so I made an extra large golf ball to try to disguise it ;)

  11. Hi, Lynne - I'm finally back in (crafty) action. Love this card - your moustache addition is perfect. Adds a bit of character to your golfer. Your addition of the larger golf ball was genius, too. I am always so disappointed when I adhere something in a wonky fashion. Will keep your idea on how to remedy that in mind.
