It's showcase time over at MilkCoffee and the theme this fortnight is 'Boys'!

The image I picked for this showcase was Soccer Boy

He is coloured using Promarkers. For the background layer, I added some cloud DP for the top section and some green card for the bottom section. I first embossed the green section with a grass embossing folder and highlighted it slightly with distress ink.

I used some plain black ribbon across the centre and I used some white acrylic paint to create the effect of the hexagons from the football on it.

Here is a close up of the wonderful MilkCoffee image.

Thank you for stopping by :)

Don't forget to pop along and take a look at the other fabulous images the DT have been using.
