It wouldn't wash at Wimbledon...

I've had a couple of these lovely new Magnolia stamps from their sporty release for a while but this is the first time I've managed to ink one up.  I'm combing a few challenges with this image - I started with Copic Oz's getting sporty challenge - hence the image choice.

For the colour choices I took my inspiration from the pink elephant's photo inspiration challenge, which were pinks and greens which is the same challenge over at cupcake craftroom so I am entering their challenge too.  Finally, there is a new challenge and they just want you to feature people so this counts for the Touch Twin Markers Challenge also, and until next year you can use any markers to colour your image (I think I may need to try these too - I do have such a weakness for pens - a little like Pauline from The League of Gentlemen.......)

So back to my card, the image as I said is Magnolia, stamped in momento ink, coloured with copics and as much as I like it, not sure she'd be allowed on court at Wimbledon in this little pink and green number!  I cut her out with a nestie, using the cut out technique for the racquet.  I cut the ball out by hand.  I used a couple of old K&Company DP sheets as they matched the copic colours very well (an no I didn't pick the papers first - this was a pure fluke!) and added a little webbed ribbon as it sort of reminded me of a tennis net.  I made the sentiment up from my "words" and alphabet sets from Elzybels.
