Kaboodles 16 'male cards'

I wanted to take part in this challenge so I could use up some Kaboodles downloads papers but realised as yet I don't possess a decent male stamp. So I went into my freebies file and found this 'lil footballer' from
Kerry Steptoe ( a really talented lady who does these wonderful drawings for some stamp companies). Go and see her blog, you won't be disappointed and Kerry gives away freebies as long as you respect her copyright. So here it goes...
The papers are from the Kaboodles Halloween download, black card from stash, the sentiment is from one of the See D's stamps Boys Toys, and also the football image which on one I've lifted with a foam pad, fine black liner pen for accenting and also white sakura gel pen which i can't do without these days. The cute image is coloured with copics YR07 orange, YG06 green , haven't got a clue which team he belongs to as I went with the colours of the papers but it was fun! I've used decorative scissors to clip the corners. I like to give my images 'ground' so they're not floating on the white card so I've used pencil watercolours and for his hair too as I don't have the correct brown in my copics but soon hoping to add to my collection. I've left his socks white not dirty as he's been good and saving his mummy a job from trying to get the mud stains out! An orange button from stash with a tiny bit of raffia to embellish. No glamour dust this time, it was hard to resist though. Thanks for looking and I'd like to wish everyone a very happy christmas and a bright and crafty 2009!!!
