I thought I would make the drilling company a card so my husband and his co-workers could sign thanking them for their generosity.
Of course I had to use Destination Cuppie in San Francisco from Taylored Expressions for the main image. I also incorporated orange and black for the Giants team colors. I used the Clouds paper from A Muse for the background so it wouldn't look to Halloween-y.
I colored this image with my Copic markers. For the sandy area, I used a kitchen rag soaked in colorless blender to give it a more sand-like texture.
I randomly stamped baseballs all over the inside of the card in Tangerine Tango by Stampin' Up!.
For the baseball, I punched out a circle from white cardstock and took a red marker to draw the stitching of the ball. Then, I stamped the sentiment by A Muse in the middle. I then punched out a smaller circle, cut it out in a spiral design, and attached one small end to the card and the other to the baseball for a 3D effect.
Thanks Pitcher Drilling for such a fun and fabulous day!
