Golf themed cards

 I was asked to make some cards for a Golf Club for the new captain and assistant captain ... it's hard enough to make special request cards, but worse when you've only one golfing stamp ;)
So after a lot of thought and dithering about, I just made two the same but different!

My golfer dude is an oldie from High Hopes, and my grass on the first one is a useful one from Eat Cake Graphics: Bunch of Grass

In both, I've coloured them with my watercolour pencils and then added some sparkle and clear gloss to the golf club and ball.  Doodled borders.

Card 1:

Card 2:

Day 4 of the Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge

I was also asked to make a 'sorry' card, I'm not sure if this works or not - does it even look like a golf ball in the rough?  Not sure.  I may or may not remake this one if I can think of something else!  Or if you've any suggestions, feel free!


  1. I like your golfer guy. He looks a little addled, but lovable just the same. As for your third card, I think I would have placed the ball in a sand pit (a very sorry place!) - and inked it with a few gray or black smudges to make it look like it had been sliced a time or two. Just a suggestion. :)

  2. I think your golf ball looks great and I love the fun design! Your doodling looks great. Thanks for joining us at HLS!

  3. What a charming little golfer! I like your doodling accents - so perfect for the look of the card! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  4. Oh how cute, Lynne! Love that golfer!

  5. I think your golf ball looks great - the only thing I could think of that might be worse - is the golf ball in a pond! :-) I love your coloring and think you did a great job of stretching your one golf stamp for so three different cards. So glad you shared them with us at the Paper Players this week
