The Next Little All Star

The Next Little All Star 

Finished Card Size: 5.5” X 4.25”

It seems as if time goes by so fast.   It felt like yesterday -  We were young and filled with dreams and ideas of what we wanted to be when we grew up.    For some that happened.   For others,  lives took another path.   But every day is a day when we can dream again and start on our path anew and refreshed.   And much wiser this time!  

Hello and HAPPY  Wednesday!   

I want to share a card I created for our Scrapmaster's Paradise  Trends Challenge.   We would love to have you participate in this with us.    The challenge is to  "use some negative space" somewhere on your card or project.

There are many different ways one can creatively use negative space.   For my card, I chose to play around with the background.    I hand texturized the background with a Fiskars texture plate called "Bubbles" and debossed the paper using a stylus.   I colored the indented area with my Copic marker.   When an image if forecefully pressed into the paper, the raised portion is the embossed area and the indented area is the "debossed".   I am calling the debossed area my negative space.   

I used the stamp Baseball Boy - a Gill Roberts Collection (SP & Company).    The image was stamped on Cryogen paper by Curious Metallic and the cute designer paper was from Echo Park called A Perfect Summer 6x6 paper pad (Echo Park). 

Copic Sketch Markers Used: 
Skin Tones : E11, E00, E000, R20
Suit: R24, R20, B000, B21, B42
T-Whirt: C0, C1
Shoes: R24, R20, C3, C0
Hair: C3, C5, C7
Bat: E0000, E23, E27
Background:  C0, C1, B000, B00

I will link this card to the following wonderful challenges:
