Hello everyone!
A friend and member of our tennis team celebrates his 70th birthday tomorrow...
He's a huge tennis fan and he plays on the same team as my husband. So what could be more appropriate than a card, showing a tennis court! 

I split the card in half with masking tape and I also cut a disc out of the masking tape, to protect the area of the yellow ball. I sponged one side with several shades of green, and the other side with orange. Sprinkled the card with water and immediately soaked it up with a paper towel. I removed the masking tape from the ball and colored it with yellow aquamarkers, leaving the white lines without color. 
I masked the outlines of the shadow area and then I sponged the inner surface with brown and grey ink. - I did not want black, the contrast would have been too strong. I removed the masking tape so that the white tape came out - and I thought the result was great!
Stamped the letters for the sentiment, cut them fussy and pasted them on the card.

I also made an envelope to match the card. - The background is sponged with green ink and everything is hand-drawn, except for the grid behind the racket. 

Wrote a little quote on the inside of the card: 
All men are born equal, but the best are tennis players.

I think he'll like it.
