Perfect Match!

I thought the little cut-out racket pair together from "Sporty Accessories" would be fabulous as a heart!
Images are stamped in Memento and colored with Copics. TIP: When mounting the rackets over a colored CS, color through the netting in a color to match so it looks like the racket is really strung and you're seeing the colored CS beneath it! Red CS is the new Gina K Pure Luxury Rocket Red, die cut with a Nestabilites heart. The tennis ball is popped up on the racket and then stamped and colored along the bottom, kind of like a brad or eyelet border but much easier!

I love all the texture (and perceived texture!) on this card. The white background paper you see is the new "Summer fabrics" digital paper, you can print your own canvas FREE, isn't that beautiful? The striped ribbons are from the new StampTV "Eclectic Summer" kit. Base is Gina K In the Navy.


Have a great day, love you!

Oh so CUTE!! First thing I thought of was my massive crush I used to have on Andre Agassi! (ok who am I kidding, he's still hot and I still have the crush!) hee hee Love your tip about coloring the tennis racket. Also love your bow, and the line of balls along the bottom. CUTE!
