SWOOSH!!!....

Hi My Friendly Friends,
Today I'm bringing to you a crafty card I created for  My Creative Time's Throwback Thursday Challenge - "Sport Challenge" use any cart to create a Sports Theme project. My family is very athletic. There are some younger and young at heart in some type of sports activity. I should have a lot more sports cards around on hand for various occasions but I just didn't get around to it. Well after creating this one, I can surely say that I will have to get on the ball and get more sports cards created. This card was created using the Basketball cart for the hoop, welded the letters together from the  Superman cart and used MCT's "Slam Dunk" stamp set. My god-son is a fantastic basketball player and he's only in 9th grade and almost 6' tall. This stamp set totally reminds me of him and this card will certainly be for him when I attend his next game.
The pattern paper is DCWV and Recollection. I wanted to create a shadow effect of the silhouettes by making each one darker than the previous until he reached the net. I wanted to use the image as a sequence type of stamping showing more of the image as it gets closer to the basket. I think I'll be trying this technique again for sure. I stamped the b-ball and cut that out a few times and placed on 3D dots. Then finally... He Scores!! The game is won with a "SWOOSH" of a basketball play. (lol) Hope you like how it came out too. DID YOU KNOW???... Emma from My Creative Time is also having her New Release Sneak Peak this week for MCT's January stamp release. You won't want to miss out on this. Help spread the word and join us on this challenge too. Smooches...
