It's all about the Golf

Although I don't play the game myself, golf is quite a big thing in my family as both of my parents and my son enjoy whacking that little white ball around the golf course.

So, as you can imagine, I was more than pleased when Stamp Addicts sent me these two stamps to make some samples with.

They each come separately, but I think these comical little chaps are a perfect match for each other.

I decided I wanted to created the effect of looking down the driving range and I thought an easel card would be just perfect for this.

So  I used some of my favourite cloudy sky paper from NitWits (Just Hatched I think....) and the rest is all made by me. Plain green paper worked perfectly for the carefully manicured driving range and I made the sand bunkers by colouring some white paper, cutting to shape and adding dotted shading to the edges. The flag was also made out of plain paper, cut to shape.

Finally I made a little stopper for my characters which were coloured with alcohol pens.

Here's a side view for you.....

Bye for now.
