Any golf fans out there? I took up golf years ago, not because I loved the game, but because I wanted to be out walking the pretty golf courses, lol. Today’s tutorial teaches how to get depth in a round object with shading and how to create a shadow for a round object. This card will more than likely go to one of the men in my life. No, I don’t have more than one husband or a boyfriend on the side, lol. I have one husband and two sons, lol. Since I think this will be given to a man, I kept the layout super simple without any frills and let the scene be the main focus. Hope you like it.

Started out by running a piece of Whisper White card stock through my Big Shot Machine using the Small Dots Texture Plate.
Punched a 1 1/4″ circle punch out of the now textured card stock.
I want the dots to be inverted so they are dimples on my golf ball. You will want to make sure you are shading the right side of the golf ball.
Sponged Sahara Sand ink at the bottom of the golf ball and just a slight bit around the top edge.
Sponged just a Always Artichoke ink at the very bottom of the golf ball.
Masked the bottom half of a 3″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White Card stock with a post it note.
Brayered Tempting Turquoise ink at the top of the card stock.
Brayered Not Quite Navy ink at the very top of the card stock.
Took the post it note mask off and put it back on to mask the sky area of the card stock.
Brayered Old Olive ink at the bottom of the card stock.
Brayered Always Artichoke ink at the very bottom of the card stock.
Sponged Always Artichoke ink at the post it note edge.
Punched an Oval out of scrap card stock.
Used the Negative part of the punch as a mask and sponged Basic Black ink in the hole to create a hole in my scene.
Used the negative hole from the Golf ball punch as a mask and sponged Always Artichoke ink in the hole to create the golf ball shadow.
Removed the mask and adhered the golf ball on the card stock. Added 2 Black panels and 1 River Rock panel.
Here is my finished card measuring 5″ x 6.5″.
May your day be one of much pleasure. I will be spending the rest of my day prepping and packing for my Auburn, Washington Brayer Workshops. I can’t wait to get there!
Until my next post. . . . . . . . . . . . .
