Last weeks Sketch Saturday and Sports Billy

Hi everybody,

I didn't make Sketch Saturday last Saturday but I did like the sketch very much so decided to do it a bit later. Have you seen Jo's sketch yet?:

This sketch somehow gave me the feeling that it would be perfect for a boy's card and since I haven't used all the new Sporty Billy stamps yet I decided to ink up American Football Billy:

Now I have to admit that I'm not totally satisfied with this one. In my head everything turned out way better than in real life... but that happens sometimes, can't win them all can you? Here is a close up of the image and sentiment:

I don't know that much about American Football, it isn't played her much and I don't think I've ever watched a game on tv, they don't show it here often in sports programs either. But I thought with Billy and his cute little dog standing with their hands up like they are doing it would be perfect for a surprise sentiment and I used the one from the Pink Cat Studio Lily & Tweet Plate. You can stamp numbers on Billy's shirt, they are enclosed in the Sporty Billy set but I decided to give him a star on his shirt, the star is from the Pink Cat Studio Billy Plate 1. Colouring is again with my Derwent Watercolour Pencils and my Copics (why do I even mention it?) and the papers are by My Minds Eye and cardstock from stash. A little bit of stickles, I embossed the cardstock behind Billy with stars, a little toy I bought in a local crafts shop and some white gellpen.... that's it. Not my best card I know but I hope you do like it.
See you back soon, have a great day everybody!!
