Huddersfield Town FC cards.

I really needed some more cards in the colours of our local football team for my stash because they are always popular and I have run out. Colour Create have blue and green as their combo this week so it was the perfect opportunity to get some done. This stamp from Jolly Nation is great because the shirt is blank so I can make it into any colours I need- here I just drew in the vertical stripes with a fine, permanent pen before watercolouring it with brushmarkers. I prefer to use pens for this stamp because they give nice strong colours which suit the football strips.

I had fun using my VersaMark pad to make the background papers for this card. The blue has a football and stars repeated over it from a Woodware clear set and the green is a background with football words from Funstamps- although it is mostly covered up! I sponged toning ink around the edges of each.

Here are my cards all together. The figures have been cut out and attached with 3D foam over a chalked background. The sentiment is Imaginisce and I added the little football in the middle myself.

Finally, I am still keeping up putting a little decoration inside; not as fancy as many of you ladies, but I like it!
Don't know if you can see from the photos but the miri has an embossed star design in it and the base card has a 'cord' texture to it.
Right, now I need to do some rugby cards in Giants colours!!
