This gentleman, from Cracker Jack just released at Artistic Outpost, looks very serious about his favorite sport and business. I am sure that many of his afternoon meetings during baseball season were in the ball park. The ribbon says it all, "Take me out to the Ball Game!" It looks like it was casual Friday at work that day :)
I colored the gentleman with copic markers and sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Brushed Corduroy. I stamped the word Baseball in cranberry red Adirondak ink to match the stamped ribbon, which was a great find at Hobby Lobby on sale.
I was looking for something to mount my baseball on and saw this red bottle cap. I have seen my friend Lynn Stevens use bottle caps but had never found any to use myself. I took mine outside and used a hammer to flatten it out. Not as pretty as Lynn's but it works for what I wanted, her's has nicely rounded edges and mine was just beat into submission!
Mounted my image on brown cardstock and then I off set two panels, one with the baseball word collage which is very cool stamped in brown and one sponged brown. I distressed all the edges a little to age it a bit.
I mounted everything on one of my favorite masculine dp's the brown with green dots.
