Baseball Bestie

Hi everyone, hope you are all well. I'm still really busy with work and tutoring but only 12 more days until I leave work (and go on a weekend trip to Barcelona, I'm so excited!).

Today is Same but Different Day at My Besties UK. Our image for this month is this super cute sporty Bestie, Baseball Bestie Img309. Don't forget to visit today's blog post, where you'll find the wonderful cards from all the DT. If you comment on that post, you will be in with a chance of winning this fab digi too.

As it will soon be 4th of July, I decided to use red, white and blue for my card. I found these fabulous digi papers on Etsy- they were an absolute bargain and will be so useful for lots of projects. I backed these onto some Crafter's Companion Neenah Desert Storm card.

I coloured the image using Spectrum Noir markers and finished the card with punched stars, twine and a button from my stash.

Spectrum Noir markers used are:
Skin FS2 FS3 FS4 CR2
Hair TN1 EB1 EB2
Clothes CR9 CR11 DR2 TB1 TB3 TB5 IG1 IG2
Bat EB1 EB2
