Embossing folder - dots
Spellbinders dies
  1. I coloured my image in using the above listed copic markers.
  2. I then matted some red co'ordinations onto my card blank.
  3. I have a small football stamp using blue versafine ink to make my backing paper.
  4. I embossed my backing paper using a 'dots' embossilicious folder and then inking around the edges with stormy sky distress inks.
  5. I cut out 3 pieces of white card, inked around the edges with the bullet end of a blue copic marker and when dry embossed them with a smaller embossilicious folder. 
  6. I then inked them using an inkilicious brush and stormy sky ink.
  7. They still looked a little bare so I wrapped some red ribbon around in a fairly haphazard way as this is a little boys card and I figured little footballers are definitely not the neat type!
  8.  Finally I matted my topper to some blue card.  I had cut my topper out using a spellbinder shape.
This image is a lovely image to colour and so useful because it can be coloured using any team colours.  Mind you I am no football supporter so heaven knows whose colours I have used. LOL
